Gather ‘Round for a Red Beans and Rice Pre-Thanksgiving Celebration

New Orleans: Come get some Free Red Beans and Rice!

Weds, Nov 21 from 11am – 1pm at five locations

Take a break from holiday cooking and Gather ‘Round

We’re partnering with Dickie Brennan & Company to distribute free bowls of hot red beans and rice in each of New Orleans’ five city council districts to celebrate the holiday season. After all, nothing’s better than cooking up a big pot of red beans and rice to get everyone together. 

Join City Councilwoman Cyndi Nguyen, Chef Dickie Brennan, and Camellia’s CEO Vince Hayward at Rosa F. Keller Library and Community Center for a warm bowl of red beans and rice as we kick off the Thanksgiving holiday.
