Through generous donations from the community, the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation facilitates the efforts of the hospitality industry to improve greater New Orleans in a variety of ways and to provide support for the education, health and social welfare of children in the community. The Foundation works to focus the combined strength of the Louisiana hospitality industry, maximizing its ability to measurably improve the communities it serves. This mission is further fulfilled by the Foundation in its ability to offer greater access to culinary education and arts, community outreach, hospitality industry financial assistance and benevolence. And because children’s education is so important, one specific way the Foundation works to achieve its mission is by providing support for their education, health and social welfare.

“Through the support of individuals and organizations such as the LHF, Boy Scouts of America will continue to deliver the promise of Scouting to an increasing number of youth.” -- John Cabeza, Scout Executive/CEO, Boy Scouts of America
Boy Scouts of America: Through the 2008 Friends of Scouting Campaign, LHF provided funds to purchase camping equipment that was damaged during Hurricane Katrina. The Boy Scouts provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and to develop personal fitness.
Emeril Lagasse Foundation: The Foundation embraces every opportunity to grant funds to children’s organizations that have a culinary and/or educational component, and to eventually enrich the lives of many young people through the creative art of cooking so that they may look towards a future of creativity, opportunity and hope.
