About the Foundation

The Louisiana Seafood Festival is one of many events that benefits the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation (LHF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to strengthen Louisiana’s hospitality industry through support of individuals within the community. Your support makes a difference!
We do this by:

  • Supporting workforce development programs directly related to our industry.
  • Providing access to culinary and hospitality education.
  • Working to ensure a positive perception of LA’s hospitality industry.
  • Providing financial assistance and/or guidance to people in the hospitality industry during times of crisis.

Through its hard work and commitment to meet these goals, as well as generous donations from the community, the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation demonstrates that a small, dedicated group – with a strong vision – can create a dramatic impact for their entire community.



May 7, 2018

After careful review and discussion, the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation has decided to take a hiatus on production of the Louisiana Seafood Festival in 2018. The festival has been produced since 2007 and is supported annually by thousands of locals and visitors to New Orleans. We will use this time to review our strategy and develop a plan that further supports our mission, which is to strengthen Louisiana’s hospitality industry through support of individuals within the community.  We apologize for any inconvenience and want to thank everyone for supporting the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation. We hope to see ya’ll soon!
