BATON ROUGE FLOOD OUTREACH/FACEBOOK
A group of New Orleans chefs teamed up to deliver 1,000 meals to residents displaced by historic flooding in South Louisiana.
Following days of historic flooding that displaced roughly 10,000 residents in South Louisiana, a group of New Orleans chefs teamed up to deliver meals and supplies to victims in need.
Chefs gathered early Monday, Aug. 15 at Langlois (
1710 Pauger St., 504-934-1010) in the Marigny, collected supplies donated from restaurants around the city and headed out to Lamar Dixon, where they plan to deliver roughly 1,000 meals. Nonperishable items, snacks, bottled water and hot meals were prepared for the victims, including trays of cornbread, jambalaya, chicken fricassee, red beans and bread pudding.
By Monday morning a Facebook page
dedicated to the effort, spearheaded by Langlois chef and owner Amy Cyrex-Sins, had grown to roughly 200 members.
