SU Ag Center Gives a Helping Hand to the Boys & Girls Club of Acadiana
Baton Rouge, La. – Angell Jordan, Family and Consumer Sciences Assistant Area Agent at the SU Ag Center’s Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development Institute (SARDI) assisted the Boys & Girls Club of Acadiana in feeding area youth during a grab and go meal distribution on April 30.
Angell aided the organization in distributing hundreds of boxes of meals to youth within the Opelousas community. The boxes contained meals for seven days, which included breakfast and lunch.
“Many kids are not eating all three meals due to school closures but the administration team at the Boys & Girls Club is trying to make sure that no kid goes hungry while out of school,” said Jordan.
The grab and go meal distributions will continue for several weeks and Jordan said she will continue to participate with this effort.
The Boys & Girls Club of Acadiana is located at 814 E. Laurent Street in Opelousas, La. For information about the organization and upcoming events, visit https://www.bgcacadiana.com.
SARDI is a satellite campus of the SU Ag Center housed in Opelousas, La. The institute focuses on improving the socio-economic well-being of citizens in rural communities within a ten-parish region of St. Landry, Acadia, Allen, Avoyelles, Beauregard, Evangeline, Lafayette, Pointe Coupee, St. Martin, and Vermillion Parishes.
