New Orleans City Business recently named Chef’s Brigade’s Executive Director Troy Gilbert as a “2021 MoneyMaker.” The award honors local professionals for financial achievements in their respective industries and their community impact. City Business was particularly impressed with Chef’s Brigade’s role in the New Orleans COVID meal plan program in which the brigade served more than 3.7 million meals to more than 24,000 New Orleans residents.
Upon hearing about the award, Gilbert pointed out that the award was really about the entire brigade, board and supporters.
“This began as an idea that jumped off and became an incredible enterprise made up of hundreds of people,” Gilbert said. “So I’m honored, but this really about the Chef’s Brigade organization.”
