“Our hearts and prayers go out to those who are affected by this devastating hurricane. We are proud to stand with and serve Louisiana as we work together to restore our communities,” said Brad Brookshire, Brookshire Grocery Co. Chairman and CEO. “We know many are still without power and we are grateful to be able to provide a free hot meal. As we have for 92 years, our company is dedicated to giving back and supporting our partners, customers and neighbors.”
