As communities continue dealing with the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, Louisiana Fish Fry launched, Friday, ‘Let’s Sing, Louisiana’- a statewide charitable song campaign that asks the community to submit videos singing the Louisiana state anthem, “You Are My Sunshine.” For each video received, Louisiana Fish Fry will donate 100 meals to the community through local food bank partner, Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
“Hope creates a ripple effect that impacts us all. Food banks provide hope to our local communities every single day,” said Michael Morse, CEO of Louisiana Fish Fry. “Our country is facing rapidly growing food insecurity issues, which will not go away overnight. We are all looking for ways to give back and help our neighbors at this time. This project gives Louisianans from all walks of life an opportunity to join together, share their musical talents, and unite to support those in need.”
Participants can submit videos by uploading a file on the Louisiana Fish Fry website, or by using the hashtag #LetsSingLouisiana on social media through Monday, May 18. Louisiana Fish Fry will curate submissions into a collaborative video to showcase Louisianans singing together and united in support of this cause.
“We are very grateful for the generous support this unique campaign brings to our mission of feeding,” said Mike Manning, president and CEO of Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. “In Louisiana, there’s nothing stronger than our sense of community, and all who participate in this fun project can do so knowing their voices will contribute directly to providing meals for families in need, especially now.”
Through the project, Louisiana Fish Fry pledges to donate meals to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, as well as Second Harvest Food Bank in New Orleans. For more information about the project visit louisianafishfry.com.
