In The Community

“We love that there are so many festivals on the Gulf Coast, and that we get to participate in so many different events. We’re as dedicated to our local culture as we are to the local farmers, fishermen, ranchers and manufacturers we partner with every day.”

—Ali Rouse Royster, 3rd Generation


Partnering with area events is one of the ways we support the communities we serve. In response to the large number of sponsorship requests we get every year, we only review proposals submitted electronically. For consideration, please submit your proposal to Rouses Markets. Your proposal must be submitted at least eight weeks prior to the event, and you must allow Rouses Markets two weeks to respond to your request. We look forward to receiving your proposal.


We work daily with local food banks to bring food, funds and hands-on assistance to local hunger relief efforts to our neighbors in need. In 2020 alone, those contributions of food and money provided the equivalent of more than 3 million meals.

Feeding the hungry is our number one giving priority. But each year, we also assist hundreds of local organizations, often with the generous participation of our customers. These are nonprofit organizations, schools and churches working to make the communities we share better places to live and work. Nonprofit and community organizations interested in donations, gift cards or sponsorships for their cause or charitable fundraising event should submit a formal request. You can download a request form here. Return completed donation request form to your local Rouses Market or mail to P.O. Box 5358, Thibodaux LA 70302. Requests need to be received a minimum of eight weeks before events, programs, activities, initiatives or projects begin and must include all the information requested on the application. You will be contacted if your request has been granted.
