LAFAYETTE, La. - The community is encouraged to participate in "Acadiana To Geaux" and order takeout, delivery, or curbside meals on Thursday, May 7 and post photos of their meals on social media and tag their favorite restaurants with the hashtag #acadianatogeaux.

One Acadiana and partners including Eat Lafayette, LEDA, DDA, United Way of Acadiana, and other local chambers and economic development offices, launched the social media campaign designed to rally support for local restaurants throughout the nine-parish region of Acadiana.

"During this time of uncertainty, our restaurant community can count on one thing with certainty: our unwavering support," said One Acadiana President and CEO Troy Wayman. "We are here for them, and we believe the 'Acadiana To Geaux' movement is a powerful way to come together to show our appreciation and support of Acadiana's legendary food scene."
