As a reminder, the Lafayette Parish School System is offering meals to area youths to provide supplemental nutrition until the end of the school year. This week Southside High School in Youngsville will be added to the list of meal pick-up sites.
Meal distribution sites will operate each Saturday from 10am-2pm at these locations:
Acadiana High School, 315 Rue du Bélier, Lafayette
Alice Boucher Elementary School, 400 Patterson St., Lafayette
Live Oak Elementary School, 3020 N. University Ave., Lafayette
Southside High School, 312 Almonaster Rd., Youngsville
All children age 18 and younger in the parish are eligible for this program, regardless of school enrollment. In-school students, virtual students, private school students, home-school students, and youth not enrolled in school all qualify for this program.
To register to pick up meals, parents should visit https://focusfoods.org/registerlafayetteparish, and complete the online registration. Even if you registered for the easter/spring break feeding opportunity, you will need to complete a new form as more information is required for this opportunity. However, once registered for the current program, your registration will be valid for the remainder of the school year and weekly registration is not required. If you miss or skip a week of meal distribution, your registration remains valid the next time your family visits a distribution site. You may register at any time throughout this program and on-site registrations will also be accepted.
LPSS has partnered with Focus Foods, a full-service vendor of meal and nutrition solutions that prepares, packages, and distributes unitized, frozen meals accompanied by shelf-stable meals, supplementary snacks, fruits, and beverages.
