Utility Provider Hurricane Damage Emergency Catering

Loss Event: Hurricane Damage

Project Overview: After Hurricane Laura made landfall in Southwest Louisiana, thousands of homes and businesses were left without power for weeks. A local electricity provider immediately set up crew members and equipment on-site and began the work to restore power in the city. However, they knew the road to recovery was long due to the level of destruction, road closures, downed power lines, and lack of essential resources in the area. Cotton Culinary was quickly called to provide food and resources to the utility workers until power was restored. From August 28 to October 7, Cotton Culinary served 20,009 meals, which included breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the utility workers and the affected community.
