SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Beginning Friday, twenty churches across several parishes in NW Louisiana will become hubs to serve families. Louisiana’s Famers to Families Boxes program is a statewide program to provide healthy meals to families affected by COVID-19. Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church will serve as the primary hub in the region.
The program will supply food boxes filled with fruits, vegetables, dairy and other essential needs. The boxes will be transported to local churches in Caddo, Bossier, De Soto, Webster, and Bienville Parishes. The program will provide boxes to families weekly through the end of the month.
“Our core belief revolves around the need to feed those who are hungry and provide shelter for ones who are outside. This opportunity gives us a chance to walk it like we talk it,” said Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church Pastor Theron Jackson.
