LAFAYETTE, La. - The community is encouraged to order takeout, delivery, or curbside meals on Thursday, April 23 and post photos of their meals on social media and tag their favorite restaurants with the hashtag #AcadianaToGeaux.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak and the significant economic impact it is having on our regional economy, One Acadiana and partners including Eat Lafayette, LEDA, DDA, United Way of Acadiana, and other local chambers and economic development offices, launched "Acadiana To Geaux," a social media campaign designed to rally support for local restaurants throughout the nine-parish region of Acadiana.

"Acadiana's vibrant restaurant scene has long been one of our strongest assets. Many of our favorite spots have been around for decades and are well-known for their resilience in the face of adversity. Yet, this pandemic poses a significant risk to their continued viability," said One Acadiana President and CEO Troy Wayman.

"We are joining forces with partners across the region in asking the community to help protect our local restaurants. If you are able, one way to show your support is by participating in #AcadianaToGeaux and ordering at least one meal from your favorite neighborhood restaurant on Thursday. Any and every takeout order can and does make a difference." Wayman added.

A parish-by-parish list of open restaurants can be found at OneAcadiana.org/AcadianaToGeaux.
