BREC Partners with Three O’clock Project to Help Feed School Children

With schools across East Baton Rouge Parish closed to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the non-profit Three O’clock Project will visit 25 BREC parks daily to provide free, nutritious meals to at-risk children. 

“During uncertain times, BREC has consistently worked with partners to utilize our parks to provide emergency services that benefit the East Baton Rouge community. When Three O’clock Project approached us with this request, we mobilized quickly to put a plan in place,” said BREC Superintendent Corey Wilson. “Through this effort, thousands of  meals will be served daily to children under 18 who might not otherwise have something healthy to eat,” said Wilson.

 Six routes have been created to deliver meals to 25 BREC parks as well as other locations across the Parish. Three O’clock Project and BREC are also looking at options to potentially expand the effort to other areas of the parish. The routes can be found below:
