Several food banks in New Orleans hit the jackpot after a Trader Joe’s grocery store in the area lost power.

News outlets reported that the store in Metairie donated more than 10,000 pounds of perishable food to the Second Harvest Food Bank after severe winter storms knocked out the power to the store for nearly 24-hours.

A spokesman for the food bank told reporters that the donation included both refrigerated and frozen items which will be distributed across 23 parishes.

The spokesman also said they are extremely grateful for the donation because it’s often hard to come by highly nutritious and perishable food donations.
