NEW ORLEANS (press release)In an effort to spread joy and help impact families in need during the coronavirus crisis, Louisiana Fish Fry has launched 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, Second Harvest 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’re thankful to Louisiana Fish Fry for creating a safe and fun way for people across the state to play a part in donating toward our mission, “said Natalie Jayroe, president and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank. “Those who participate should be proud to know their voices will contribute directly to providing meals for families who need it the most right now.”
 
Through the project, Louisiana Fish Fry pledges to donate meals through Second Harvest Food Bank, the region’s largest hunger relief agency, as well as the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. For more information about the project, visit louisianafishfry.com.
