Chefs on Boats provides food service workers and culinary students with immersive educational expeditions into Louisiana's vanishing coastal wetlands. Participants learn about the fisheries, the evolution of commercial fishing and a variety of coastal issues. The program directly connects our culinary ambassadors with their changing environment, how it impacts local availability, sustainability, and what this means for the future of Louisiana and the Gulf Coast's seafood industry.
In partnership with the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL), our restaurant partners collect once discarded oyster shells from their raw bars and charbroiled dishes which are then repurposed to build new oyster reefs, breeding habitats and slow the effects of coastal erosion in endangered fishing grounds.
Chefs Brigade and our restaurant and coalition partners produced 3.7-Million culturally appropriate meals for the residents of Orleans Parish during the COVID-19 pandemic through the FEMA and City of New Orleans Meal Assistance Program. When enabled, the Brigade System has demonstrated the food production bandwidth and logistical flexibility to safely handle and scale up for virtually any conceivable future crisis.
