More people turning to the Eunice Food Bank for assistance

More people are turning to the Eunice Food Bank for assistance as the coronavirus has slowed the economy along with the spread of the disease.
Mary Ann Guillory, director, said many people have lost their jobs in the last couple of month “which means no income, and also means no food.”
The Eunice Food Bank feeds nearly 300 families. Since the pandemic, “We now adopted new registered families, anywhere from 10 to 15 families since mid March. We have also helped more homeless people.”
The food bank is accepting food items and toiletries.
