Want to take a break from Thanksgiving cooking?

Free red beans are being offered in each city council district to residents

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is always busy. The grocery stores are packed, and families are already starting to get together to prepare for Thanksgiving meals.

If you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday, Camellia Red Beans is teaming up with Dickie Brennan on Wednesday to give out free bowls of red beans and rice in each of the city council’s five districts.

The giveaway begins at 11 a.m. at each location until 1 p.m.
