Press Release from St. Landry Parish School Board
OPELOUSAS, LA — Attention, everyone! We are pleased to announce the launch of our Summer Feeding Program, which aims to ensure that no child goes hungry during the summer months.
Announcing the summer food program!
The Grab & Go summer meal program runs from June 5, 2023, to July 20, 2023, where parents may pick up multi-day meals. Additionally, students attending enrichment programs at schools will receive breakfast and lunch meals onsite, as well as weekend meal boxes, and are only eligible for Grab & Go meal pick-ups on certain days. We want to ensure our community’s children have nutritious meals during this time. We will have two meal pickups per week.
We have designated several convenient places in all areas of the parish where parents can pick up grab-and-go meals.
Monday & Wednesday meal pickups include North Central High, Port Barre High, Eunice High, and Leonville Head Start.
Tuesday & Thursday meal pickups include Washington Head Start,
Sunset Middle School, Lawtell Elementary School, and Opelousas Junior High School.
Program times vary by location. Please refer to our website’s Summer Feeding Program page,

Who can participate:
The program is open to all children eighteen and under or disabled children 19 and over enrolled in public or private school, regardless of their socio-economic background or place of residence. We want to ensure that all children in our community benefit from this initiative.
