One thing we understand extremely well in New Orleans is overcoming adversity. Surviving, scraping back with every ounce of energy we have,  persevering and coming out stronger from a crisis like Hurricane Katrina teaches us a few things.  Mission Chefs, ACF understand…

Collaboration is at the top of that list.

Our communities come together 

Churches and volunteer groups  poured in from around the country to lend a hand. And our Chefs led the way to our recovery. Prior to Katrina, we had 700 restaurants. Today we have over 1,400 restaurants in a town of 340,000 people.

The spirit of helping each other is alive and well 10 years later.

Anyone can drive around our city and look at the street corners and under bridges and recognize their is a huge need as our homeless and Veterans struggle.

Today, Mission Chefs has partnered with the ACF,American Culinary Federation, in New Orleans to support the New Orleans Mission. We just helped with the New Orleans Mission’s annual gala and have a few other events in the works.    And this is the cool part. The New Orleans Mission and Mission Chefs are supporting ACF’s annual Best Chefs of Louisiana Event this coming April.

Once again, we are coming together as community to address the issue.   While the issue is big, our vision for success is bigger. Than means working together. Collaborating.
