BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – The coronavirus is still here and everyone is going to be required to wear a mask inside businesses in Baton Rouge very soon.
With that in mind, school is still over a month away for many local students.
For any students that are hungry during this time, the Child Nutrition Program of the Diocese of Baton Rouge is still going to be available this month.
The Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge provided this message with all of the necessary details:
This is to remind you that the Child Nutrition Program of the Diocese of Baton Rouge will continue to serve meals Monday through Friday during the month of July at the times and locations mentioned in this email. This is especially important because it’s possible some other providers have discontinued distribution of meals effective June 30. Thank you for any assistance you can give us to assure that all children through 18 years of age, regardless of faith or school affiliation, are eligible for these meals.
Be well. Be blessed. Be well blessed.
Deacon Dan Borne’Communications Secretary Diocese of Baton Rouge
