Brookshire's Grocery Co., the company that owns Super 1 Foods, is deploying a community kitchen and a team of employee-partners to serve free hot meals to people who have been affected by Hurricane Delta in Acadiana, according to a statement from the company.
Starting Sunday, teams began serving sausage biscuits for breakfast and hamburgers and hotdogs for lunch and dinner in the Super 1 Foods parking lots listed below, while supplies last at each location.
Lester Washington, store manager at the West Willow Super One in Lafayette, said they planned to serve at least 500 free meals at the location Sunday.
He and store workers Steve Wise and Bryan Charlot were serving up burgers and hot links Sunday afternoon under a hot sun.
Washington acknowledged that because they were all from Lafayette, many of his workers had issues at their own homes, including fallen trees and limbs and lack of power. But they wanted to help their neighbors.
"It's all for a good cause," he said.
