“My wife and I attended the Malcolm Jenkins Foundation’s Taste of New Orleans”. Malcolm and his wife were extremely gracious hosts. The food was provided by some of the city’s top restaurants. Also on hand were several of the Saints players. Malcolm and the players were very accommodating and patient with the Horde of fans who were present. The highlight of the evening was a young man who was a freshman at UNO, thanks to the mentoring and financial help from the foundation. A round of applause to Malcolm Jenkins; a son of New Jersey, a product of the great Ohio State University, a member of the Saints, and a genuinely fine example of a man. A great night for a great cause.”
