One out of every six Louisiana homes facing food insecurity and a Lafourche Parish man is helping to change that, WDSU News reports.

Jim Boulet, an 85-year-old retired businessman, donates all of the food he plants and picks on his 30-acre farm to the Second Harvest Food Bank. He spends several hours each day picking turnips. Last year, Boulet harvested 65,000 pounds of turnips; this year, his goal is 100,000 pounds.

From WDSU News:

“‘We’re well off. I don’t need to make money. I don’t want to make money,’ Boulet said. ‘This is very enjoyable to me to give to people . . . who really need it.’”
