I challenge other food bloggers to give aid to those who worked in the food industry and made New Orleans so flavorful:
New Orleans Hospitality Workers Disaster Relief Fund A fund has been established to benefit employees of the hospitality industry of the Greater New Orleans area who have experienced hardships because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Contributions may be sent to:
New Orleans Hospitality Workers Disaster Relief Fund
Greater Houston Community Foundation
4550 Post Oak Place, Suite 100
Houston, TX 77027
Call 713-333-2200 for additional information
I'm a big proponent of "paying it forward", but in a lot of ways, this is "paying it back". Even people like me who have never experienced the "bon temps roulant" of N'awlins have heard that, well, it's a friendly, generous, and fun town.
Jill also has some great NOLA-related posts on her blog, check them out.
