BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The East Baton Rouge Council on Aging (EBRCOA) hosted a food distribution event for seniors Wednesday, May 13.
On Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Volunteers with the Lotus Food Pantry distributed food at EBRCOA’s Antioch Senior Center on Antioch Road from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Hundreds of cars were backed up on Antioch Road with seniors waiting to get free groceries and household items while supplies last.
“It was blocked up for miles and so that speaks to the need and its really encouraging for the council on aging to be able to step up and fill a little of that gap,” EBR Metro Councilwoman Denise Marcelle told WAFB.
