Giving Back

As a family company, we recognize the need to help our neighbors in times of despair.
We’re proud to share our resources and time. 

Our activities include:

Cajun Navy

Cajun Cooking Crew

In Louisiana, cooking is more than just a way of life. From the epic flooding in Baton Rouge to the deluge of Hurricane Harvey, the TKTMJ team has provided over 5,000 meals for survivors sharing a little bit of our cooking culture with families who have lost everything.

Disaster Relief

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, we banded together with other local business to purchase supplies and acted as a drop-off point to receive donations for essential supplies for storm victims, using our 18 wheeler to bring supplies to our neighbors in Texas.

St. Baldricks

Every year the TKTMJ team “Braves the Shave” for childhood cancer. Kids with cancer is a hard statement to say and a much harder one to live. We believe in helping with finding a cure for this horrible disease that inflicts kids. We raise money every year and shave our heads for this cause.
