PLAQUEMINE, La. (AP) — Some Iberville Parish students soon could get another meal during the day if school officials are successful at implementing a federally funded At-Risk After School Meals Program geared toward feeding kids who participate in after-school activities.

The school district's interest in giving kids a third meal each day is driven by school board member Brian Willis

Willis has been pushing the district for six months to start the program because he said a significant percentage of the parish's students are not getting enough to eat and are impoverished.

Iberville's Food Service Supervisor Paula Warner said the school district is gathering information to apply for the program.
