NEW ORLEANS — From Copeland’s of New Orleans and Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro:

Copeland’s restaurants are now accepting donations at every restaurant location to help aid in the current humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. The Copeland Family will match all donations through the end of March. World Central Kitchen is the beneficiary of this fundraising initiative.

World Central Kitchen has been serving meals to thousands of families escaping the violence in Ukraine and people remaining in the country each day. Copeland’s restaurant patrons may add a donation at the bottom of the guest check, and every dollar will be matched and sent directly to World Central Kitchen.
