Dana Michell, a board member with the nonprofit, said that BREC and several community nonprofits are also involved. The initiative will serve out lunch and breakfast, just as other school meals are being provided since the governor’s recent order closing all public schools in Louisiana until April 13 in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
