Slidell Moving & Storage celebrated Mardi Gras by hosting a specially-themed red rice and beans food drive in their community from February 16-March 5.

Not only are rice and beans staple ingredients of the classic New Orleans dish, but they are also some of the most highly-requested items by food banks because they are delicious sources of protein and fiber.

Slidell Moving & Storage collected a total of 1,200 lbs. of food  , which will provide 1,000 meals for those in need! All of the donations were delivered to the First Baptist Church-Slidell Food Pantry

More than 783,000 people in Louisiana are food insecure, including 1 in 5 children. Great job, Slidell Moving & Storage, and thank you for helping out your neighbors in need!
