NEW ORLEANS, (BRPROUD)- Entergy is celebrating the holidays by partnering with local food pantries and nonprofits across Louisiana to make sure that families in need and those also affected by Hurricane Ida are provided healthy nutritious meals.

According to Entergy, $300,000 have been contributed to nonprofits and pantries including The Salvation Army, Families the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and The Salvation Army’s Holiday Food Box program throughout the year and during the holiday season—to help thousands of families across Louisiana fight food insecurity and receive meals.

“We know the pandemic and historic hurricane seasons have only increased economic hardships for people in our communities and that’s why supporting local food pantries and nonprofits providing disaster relief is so important to us,” said Phillip May, Entergy Louisiana president and CEO.

“Please join us in supporting these community service organizations that are working incredibly hard to make sure our neighbors are healthy and safe, not only during the holiday season but all year long,” he added.
