The trade war with china has had some negative impacts on businesses accross the country and even here in louisiana.

But news 15's cassie schirm found out that there is a silver lining for those needing food here in our area.

Thousands of pounds potatoes from california and pork louis from iowa were dropped off at the second harvest food bank over the last year so it's hundreds and thousands of extra pallets of food that we have received it's a good problem to havethis is all apart of the tfapthe emergency food assistance program where the government is buying food from farmers and food productions that were being impacted by the trade war jay vise_ with second harvest says this will help the one in five families in louisiana who are is at risk of hunger.especially as we get into the holiday this extra food is going to be so incredibly valuablsince the program started second harvest has received over a million pounds of extra food to help the community.

Every year they collect more than 30,000,000 pounds of food nine million pounds of that here in acadiana for those who work hands on with the food they say a little extra food goes a long way to help.

Just the smallest thing i mean for them to actually be able to have the resources and know that a little help a potato or rice or different things for the families are dependent their kids to feed world of a differencea little positivity in a bad situation they have so many things that are going on these days so many people focus on the negative things to be able to bring a positive light to peoples lives it's definitely a blessing oki was told even a bag of potatoes like this one here can make a world of a difference for families he did who don't know when her meal will come from next in lafayette i'm cassie schirm.
