EatLafayette by Lafayette Travel, Coca-Cola, Talk-N-T Shirts and the United Way of Acadiana have teamed up to sell a t-shirt to raise money for hospitality industry workers (restaurants and hotels) in Lafayette Parish.

The “Feed the Envie” T-Shirt will raise money that the United Way will use to make grants to workers employed by locally owned restaurants or hotels in Lafayette Parish who have taken an economic hit as a result of COVID-19.

The t-shirt, designed by Lafayette Travel Creative Director Lance LeBlanc, can be purchased for $25 plus shipping, handling and tax, through Talk-N-T Shirts at the following link:

“We know our locally owned restaurants and hotels are hurting right now with no end in sight, and they are doing the best they can to make do in this current environment. EatLafayette has been a partner of our locally owned restaurants for 15 years, and we hope the public will rally to purchase this t-shirt and support the workers who help make our area so hospitable, special and unique,” said Ben Berthelot, President and CEO of Lafayette Travel who puts on the EatLafayette Campaign each year.

“We’d like to thank Coca-Cola, partner of EatLafayette for many years, for being the first to step up and help sponsor the shirt. Talk-N-T-Shirts and United Way of Acadiana also deserve special thanks for jumping on board and helping us turn it around so quickly,” Berthelot added.
