For us to help, we need help.

From wildfires in Hawaii to hurricanes across America, and every crisis in between, Southern Smoke Foundation is there for food and beverage workers. We keep families safe in their homes. We keep the lights on for thousands. We keep the industry moving.

But for us to grant emergency relief funds to our applicants, we need funding, too.

Please donate to Southern Smoke Foundation. On average, we’re granting $3,400 to each F+B worker we serve.

Help us help someone today.

Marjie’s Grill

After a decade & half of cooking in Ohio, California, Japan & New Orleans, Marcus Jacobs set out with his PIC, Caitlin Carney, to open Marjie’s Grill; a live fire centric restaurant near OPP serving BBQ, seafood & veggies from Louisiana & the Gulf South seasoned with bright Vietnamese, Thai & Laos flavors.

In May of 2021 the duo opened Seafood Sally’s: a casual modern Louisiana Seafood Restaurant in The Pigeon Town Neighborhood uptown. It’s been nothing but Love, Crabs & BBQ since then.
