Covington, Louisiana – Here at Avala, our healthcare stretches throughout our local communities. We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused strain on the local food pantries and Avala has stepped up to assist with fulfilling that shortfall. We have had the opportunity to donate 965 meals to community families thus far.

Avala is hosting our 7th community food distribution in order to provide local families with needed non-perishable items to create a healthy meal of spaghetti, pasta sauce, canned vegetables, and some great additional treats!

It is our hope that this donation to our community can help alleviate some stress surrounding the effects COVID-19 has had on our economy.

Avala would like to thank all of the vendors who generously donated to this cause.
