Boys & Girls Club to provide meals on Friday in Abbeville

While Louisiana is set to go into Phase 1 on Friday, there is still help needed for many families affected by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Some of that help will be available this Friday morning in Abbeville.
On Friday, the Boys & Girls Club Rodney Unit in Abbeville will partner with the Three O’Clock Project to provide meals for children in Vermilion Parish.
“It came to our attention that there was a greater need in Vermilion Parish,” Rodney Unit Director Brian Ford said. “We wanted to do something to help.”

Scott Weaver and his co-workers at Hebert’s Slaughterhouse and Meat Market have been busy during the past few weeks.

Vermilion Parish meat markets have not been this busy since Hurricane Rita, 15 years ago

While the rest of the country is finding it challenging to purchase meat in supermarket chains, there are two businesses in Abbeville whose business has picked up because of the decrease in meat nationally.
Richard’s Meat Market, Hebert’s Slaughterhouse & Meat Market, south of Abbeville, and Hebert’s Specialty Meats in Maurice have seen a spike in business for the last two weeks because of what is happening with the closure of meat processing plants in the United States.
