NEW ORLEANS- In anticipation of the threat of Hurricane Delta to Southeast Louisiana, Councilmember Kristin Gisleson Palmer will not host this week's food pantries in District C. The two food pantries canceled this week were scheduled for Friday, October 9, at the Arthur Monday Center and Saturday, October 10, at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre. Councilmember Palmer, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, World Central Kitchen, and Culture Aid NOLA have provided the drive-up food pantries for families and individuals impacted by COVID-19 since March.
"The safety and welfare of our residents is our top priority, which is why we have decided to cancel this week's drive-up and walk-up food pantries," said Councilmember Palmer. "As the City of New Orleans prepares for Hurricane Delta, it is imperative that we all do our part to keep our families and ourselves safe and out of harm's way. We hope to resume the food pantries next week but will make that determination after the storm is no longer a threat to our city."
