Winn-Dixie is celebrating 65 years in Louisiana and commemorating the milestone with a week-long series of community events throughout the greater New Orleans area to honor the people and culture that make the state so unique. To kick off the anniversary festivities, Winn-Dixie will be feeding 650 local families at a drive-through mobile food pantry in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank on Monday, July 26.

The special distribution is open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 9 a.m. at Goodwill Industries, located at 3400 Tulane Ave., and will supply families with everyday food essentials, as well as local staples such as Camellia Beans. The grocer will sample Louisiana-favorite red beans and rice while attendees enjoy music by a local DJ, and the Ochsner Health Blood Bank will be onsite for guests to give back to their neighbors in need.

We look forward to seeing you Monday!
