For every Fish & Chips Po'boy sold this month at JED's Local Po'boys, $1 will go to the Louisiana Hospitality Association.

JED's Local Po'boys, 672 Jefferson Highway, is helping out local nonprofits with its "Po'boy of the Month."

For every "Po'boy of the Month" sold, $1 is donated to that month's charity. The restaurant also seeks to educate its social media followers and dine-in guests about how that organization is making an impact in the community.

Nonprofits have taken a hit during the coronavirus pandemic, and the local eatery says this is their way of creating some momentum for them in the new year.

In February, the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation will get the donation from every Fish & Chips Po'boy sold.
