BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch? You can find that and more today at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi.  

Friday's Katrina Cafe event at the museum is all about the Salvation Army MS Gulf Coast's mission in the days immediately after, and since Hurricane Katrina. The head of the charity will also discuss the huge investment that has been made in the Kroc Center in east Biloxi. 

Meals for this Katrina Cafe event will be served from a Salvation Army mobile kitchen, called a canteen. Those same canteens served meals in so many neighborhoods in the days and weeks after Katrina. 

Admission to the event is free, and included lunch and admission to the museum. It all starts Friday at noon.
