Inspire • Mentor • Enable

Emeril Lagasse Foundation creates opportunities to inspire, mentor and enable youth to reach their full potential.

Since 2002, we have granted over



to children’s charities to support culinary, nutrition & arts programs.

"From the beginning, Alden and I knew we had to pay it forward. We have always been drawn to helping children and have been inspired by how a small contribution can turn into something great."
