MANCHAC — How would you like a FREE Thin Fried Catfish Dinner, a FREE Blood Center T-shirt plus the BEST FEELING EVER for helping others? It can all be yours if you donate blood during our drive at Middendorf’s Manchac and Middendorf’s Slidell.

“We’re all so busy during the holidays that it’s easy to forget to do a lot of things including giving blood,” said Middendorf’s Owner Karen Pfeifer. “We hope that by having The Blood Center buses outside of our two restaurants, it will be easier and more convenient to donate. What a wonderful and generous gift to give this holiday season.”

The Blood Drive will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., at Middendorf’s Manchac (30160 Highway 51 S.) and Middendorf’s Slidell (1951 Oak Harbor Blvd.).

Donors are encouraged to make an appointment on The Blood Center website:


The direct links to register can also be found on Middendorf’s website ( and Facebook Page.

Middendorf’s Seafood Restaurant is known as the “Home of the World Famous Original Thin Fried Catfish®.”  It’s been around since 1934 and is locally owned and operated.
