The oil spill not only endangers marine live, water foul, and coastal animals. The greatest tragedy is the people who are affected. Our wonderful community of Bayou La Batre and our neighbors are primarily a fishing village. Fishing is gone and so are all the fishing supported jobs. Many, many of our people and our friends are jobless and need food. Thankfully, the Bay Area Food Bank has helped us be able to feed some, but not all we want to feed.
The National Guard and friends like Mike Buamgartner are doing all they can to help. Mike, who runs Disaster Assistance, is preparing and giving away about 300 meals per day. Below are some pictures of the recent food giveaways. The need is great, if you can help please contact us.
