Cook-Off for the Coast Returns in 2023!

About the Cook-Off

Cook-off for the Coast is a family-friendly event started in 2017 in St. Bernard Parish to help raise awareness about Louisiana’s land loss crisis and the urgent need for coastal restoration. This is a free event and open to the public. Proceeds from merchandise sales and donations benefit local coastal restoration projects. The 2023 cook-off will benefit the Chandeleur Sound Living Shoreline Program and the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana Oyster Recycling Program.

Join us on March 11, 2023, at Docville Farm!
