Free Summer Lunch Program


The City of Alexandria is making sure every child has the chance to receive a meal.  Meals will be distributed at 4 different locations for the rest of the month. This is an extension of the Rapides Parish School Board Feeding Program. Organizer tells people to come out.

“This is a free meal and a great opportunity to take advantage of. It is first come first serve as far as materials and food that we have . We want everybody to come out get the meals, bring their kids. If they’re not able to bring their kids, we can help them out with that as well.” – Sakena Cannon

    What about the kids in the rural areas churches could be used as distribution sites. Our children need food too. We live in Rapides parish also.
