They're from Napoleonville, and were at the Assumption Parish Community Center, which was taking in people needing shelter, including Morgan City's Elizabeth Mason, center.

Assumption Parish officials will distribute boxes of food and water starting 10 a.m. Wednesday for those in need.

The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank has donated 600 to 1,000 boxes and they will be offered until they run out on Wednesday, parish officials said in statement.

The distribution will be at Assumption Parish Community Center, 4910 La. 308, Napoleonville.

Those arriving at the center should follow the directions of Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies to receive a box of supplies.
