Emeril Shows His Generosity

The Emeril Lagasse Foundation is donating over $500,000 in grants to fund culinary education and summer camp programs in different areas in and around New Orleans, which have been affected by Hurricane Katrina. This will bring the amount to over $1,000,000 that Emeril's foundation has given to the area since January of 2006.

The organizations to benefit include Save The Children and The United Way of Greater New Orleans, a summer arts camp at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans and a brand new culinary arts program at New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA).

Good for you, Emeril.
