Local Restaurants Participate in Promotion 10/24-31 to Raise Funds for Louisiana Flood Relief
“Food is the ultimate connector of people, and an amazing tool to help make lives better” says Chauniqua Major, founder and Culinary Connector of Good Through Food. The new Orlando-based organization strives to impact the world through food-related efforts. Their first initiative, Project 001, launched this month to aid victims of the recent Louisiana floods.
Project 001’s aim is to help the people affected by the Louisiana floods which devastated the area. Sadly, this past August, 7.1 trillion gallons of water fell on Louisiana. 13 lives were lost, and more than 140,000 homes destroyed. The devastation impacted Major, a local public relations manager, blogger and entrepreneur. “God moved me to truly utilize my heart for giving, knowledge of food and accessibility to cool brands around the world to be a blessing in our community and afar” stated Major.
From October 24-31, 2016, local Orlando restaurants are joining the mission by creating Louisiana-inspired dishes, drinks or desserts. Proceeds from sales, from 25-100%, will be donated to Baton Rouge Area Foundation. The Louisiana-based charity seeks to assist South Louisiana residents which make up the majority of the 30,000 people who were displaced from their homes.
Here’s how you can help:
As a Restaurant Chef, it’s not too late to sign up and offer your Louisiana-inspired dish. Contact Good Through Food via email and let Major know the name of your dish, your restaurant logo and contact information at firstname.lastname@example.org
