WCK Chef Relief Team deploys to Louisiana for Hurricane Barry

Hurricane Barry made landfall in Louisiana over the weekend, and WCK was already on the ground with 3 relief kitchens activated and preparing meals. With some areas expected to receive up to 24 inches of rain, severe flooding is a huge concern.


Our Chef Relief Team arrived in Louisiana on Wednesday to start preparing for Barry. The team quickly identified kitchens in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Lafayette that could be used to provide fresh meals across the state. As bands of the storm started to hit Friday night, our kitchen in New Orleans served sautéed beef with mushroom and sun-dried tomato sauce over roasted potatoes & spinach, with an apple, roasted tomato, and walnut salad — delivered to the New Orleans evacuee shelter.


On Saturday morning, our Relief Kitchens in Lafayette, Baton Rouge and New Orleans were in full swing, preparing the hot, nutritious meals WCK is known for.

On the #ChefsForLouisiana menus: Chili Mac & Cheese, Cajun Gumbo, Roasted Pork Loin, and more. Of course, a fresh made salad was delivered with every meal!

We’ve been delivering fresh meals to evacuee shelters, isolated communities affected by the flooding, an animal intake shelter, and first responders keeping everyone safe during Barry.
