Businesses in Lake Charles were devastated by Hurricane Laura, but one restaurant is doing what they can to help feed their neighbors.

Tony's Pizza is still recovering from storm damage, but today they fired up their ovens and handed out free pizza to those in need.

The owner tells us they're grateful to be able to support the community during difficult times.

"There is so much damage and devastation around here that there is nowhere to really eat," explained owner Chris Dickerson. "We got so many people in town: construction workers, electrical linemen. That's who we are serving today."

Dickerson said he hopes to reopen Tony's next week.
