Krewes Give Back After Ida

September 20 2021

Mardi Gras Is About More than Throwing Beads. It’s About Giving Back.

The Covid-19 pandemic may have stopped Mardi Gras parades from rolling in 2021 but not it–or Hurricane Ida–can stop the krewes from giving back to the community. Earlier this week, the Krewe of Red Beans and the Wild Magnolias fed the spirits of the people of LaPlace with barbecue from Elton Bar-B-Krewe.  This Saturday, September 25th, ALLA and Morpheus are doing their part as well. The krewes are teaming up to serve 500 hot meals at Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Larose. Along with preparing the meals, the krewes will be bringing supplies they collected this past weekend.


 If you are interested in helping with food prep and/or meal service, please email Del Hamilton at with your full name, email, and cell phone number and please use KOA HURRICANE RELIEF as the subject line.
