Robal, a staffing app assisted with feeding essential workers in the community of Lake Charles following the aftermath of Hurricane Laura. On the morning of August 27th, hurricane Laura made landfall in Louisiana. This devastating storm hit the Gulf Coast fast and left just as quickly. Laura was the tenth-strongest storm in US history, inflicting an estimated $14 billion in damages to several areas of the Southeast. 

Robal was able to place over 80 workers within hours after the storm, to assist with feeding of the essential workers and the community.


Ethel’s Baking Co. is excited to announce that its purely delicious dessert bars, which are also gluten free, are now available for retail nationwide in new single-serve packages.  

Handmade with love in small batches, Ethel’s dessert bars are made with local, sustainably sourced ingredients, including hormone-free butter and cage-free eggs, using old-fashioned mixers. Each layer of every bar is baked separately to ensure perfect texture and taste.

Ethel’s single-serve dessert bars come in four mouthwatering flavors:

  • Pecan Dandy, Ethel’s original bar that’s reminiscent of a pecan pie, with a buttery shortbread crust, topped with handmade caramel and whole pecans. A sweet dessert indulgence.
  • Cinnamon Crumble, which tastes and smells like an old-fashioned cinnamon roll, with cinnamon filling, crumbly streusel and a light, sweet glaze on top of a shortbread crust. Great with an afternoon cup of coffee.
  • Raspberry Crumble, which tastes like a fresh raspberry pastry, is made with Ethel’s signature short-bread crust. Ready for breakfast with coffee or tea.
  • Blondie, with the sweet butter and chocolate of a chocolate chip cookie combined with the indulgence of a moist dense brownie, plus a touch of caramel.
