The Second Harvest Food Bank in New Orleans is the beneficiary of a storm-related power outage yesterday that impacted Trader Joe's in Metairie and left thousands of Entergy customers in the dark.

The business opted to donate 10,000 of refrigerated and frozen items, sending the food to the organization's Elmwood location.

A food bank official told NOLA.com the donation will help hundreds of needy families across nearly two dozen parishes.
