PEARLAND, Texas – With more than 127,000 followers on Instagram, Lotus Seafood knows how to satisfy your tastebuds with its images.
Known for its specialty sauces, Louisiana style Po-boys, Asian noodles, fried rice and a variety of chicken wings, customers cannot stop raving about this seafood hot spot.
However, it’s not just its delicious entrees, sauces and daiquiris that have captured the attention of many Houstonians. The restaurant’s name has spread across our community through its generous contribution -- helping those in need.
Within the past three weeks, all four of Lotus Seafood’s locations have proudly served 200 free kids meals every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Derrick Wilkerson, manager of the Pearland location, said it’s been rewarding to see how many families have participated and been helped.
Wilkerson, a father of three, understands how difficult times are right now, especially with children being out of school. “These people are like our heartbeat,” said Wilkerson. “It keeps us going.”
According to Wilkerson, all 200 plates are distributed at each location, and no extra plates are left behind.
“However we can help them out - we are all from Houston,” said Wilkerson.
The meals include popcorn shrimp, chicken nuggets and fish nuggets, all served with french fries.
