The Gumbo Foundation is cooking for a cause in perfectly seasoned Opelousas. Every year, the foundation rounds up area chefs who are willing to compete for “best gumbo”, an honor held high in Louisiana. Event chefs and volunteers are working hard for the benefactor of the event proceeds, a local child in need. All the proceeds from the cook-off benefit a child and family who are burdened with medical and related expenses.

Last year the competition took place virtually. There were several live sessions throughout the day, including event organizers and staff, participating teams, and musical guest performances. And everyone will be able to share comments, photos, and the like. Visit for the schedule of events.
