Along with the Flood & Disaster Outreach – New Orleans Cooks' group, members of the Nunez Community College Culinary Connection student group helped prepare meals on September 19 to be served to those affected by Hurricane Florence.
Flood & Disaster Outreach – New Orleans Cooks was formed on Facebook in 2016 in response to the flooding in Baton Rouge. By coordinating with the Cajun Navy, they were able to prepare and transport tasty food to Baton Rouge residents trying to dig out and rebuild their lives. The group reorganized, last year, to aid those suffering during the flooding in the Houston, Texas area after Hurricane Harvey. This year, they have broadened their reach to the Carolinas to aid those recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. By partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank – Feeding South Louisiana they are building upon great experiences and expertise.
Nunez Culinary Connection, the official club for the culinary arts students at Nunez Community College, has made a commitment to aid both the Flood & Disaster Outreach – New Orleans Cooks program and Second Harvest Food Bank – Feeding South Louisiana during this time of need. Nunez Culinary Connection and their faculty advisors shared kitchen space with many amazing chefs to prepare a bevy of culinary creations with the intent to fill bellies with good food and hearts with the gift of caring.
