United for Grocery Workers Relief Fund


United for Grocery Workers Relief Fund 


United Way of Southeast Louisiana, the New Orleans Council on Aging, and Entergy New Orleans are proud to announce a contribution from New Orleans native Anthony Mackie to launch the United for Grocery Workers Relief Fund to support struggling employees throughout Orleans Parish. 

The fund will provide a one-time $500 direct credit toward workers’ Entergy New Orleans utility bills.


Hourly-wage jobs, like grocery and convenience store workers, are often not afforded the same basic workplace protections –  like paid sick leave and adequate health care – of jobs with higher wages and annual salaries, which leaves individuals in these positions especially vulnerable to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The partners want the community to recognize these employees are essential workers year-round – not just in a state of emergency – while providing much need financial support to those in need.


Applicants must complete the application below and meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Work in a business that sells groceries
  • Live in Orleans Parish
  • Provide current pay stub to show proof of employment 
  • Provide current Entergy New Orleans power bill to show proof of residence (address on pay stub must match power bill)

Individuals are encouraged to dial 211 if they need help filling out the application.
