Baton Rouge neighborhoods have a few things in common: strong families, good work, and people who recognize the value of each other. The TJ Ribs family not only strives to make the best food and provide great service, but we take pride in supporting other folks in our communities who also do extraordinary work.

During the 2020-21 school year, TJ Ribs is once again celebrating the dedicated men and women who commit themselves to helping nurture our children by being teachers. Everyday teachers inspire the minds and imaginations of young people, help provide safe places for children to grow and play, and give students skills and confidence for the future. Starting in September, we are giving $1,000 each month to teachers from our communities to help them carry out this tremendous and essential “assignment.”
