Beginning Friday, March 4, the Fish Fry Fridays campaign will serve as a fundraising event to benefit Hospitality Cares, a partnership between Louisiana Hospitality Foundation and United Way of Southeast Louisiana (UWSELA). Participating restaurants will donate $1 per fish fry entrée sold each week through April 15.

Hospitality Cares is a crisis grant program offering varying resources, including emergency financial assistance to individuals working in the hospitality industry – one of the region’s largest employment sectors. The funds provide temporary assistance during times of crisis to cover basic financial needs, including housing, medical and utility bills. 

Launched in 2020, Fish Fry Fridays has raised over $12,000 from restaurant sales and a sponsorship from TABASCO®, who also sponsored the campaign in 2021 and will again sponsor it in 2022. 

New Orleans Fish House will offer discounts to participating restaurants for their seafood features.
