NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Port Orleans Brewing Co. is partnering with NATCO Food Service, Louisiana Fresh Produce, and Blue Runner Red Beans to serve freshly prepared food for pick-up for service industry employees. The free meals will help those in need until they are able to get back to work. “With overwhelming support from community partners and friends, we have started a local non-profit, POB United, to help support our service industry,” said Zach Strief, Port Orleans Brewing Co. owner. “I am grateful to be able to provide some assistance to those who have given so much of themselves to make New Orleans what it is today—a city full of love and hospitality.”

The money raised through POB United will be used to purchase goods from NATCO, Louisiana Fresh, and Blue Runner and will employ local chefs with their teams to cook the meals, thus providing them with a paycheck, while providing meals for others. Approximately 500 free meals will be distributed every Wednesday and Friday through the end of May, unless additional social distancing rules are applied.
