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.

The 2023 cook-off will benefit the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana’s Restoration Programs, Nunez Community College, and Chalmette High CTE’s Chandeleur Sound Living Shoreline Program in St. Bernard Parish.
