Grants Programs

Emeril Lagasse Foundation seeks to create opportunities to inspire, mentor and enable youth to reach their fullest potential through culinary, nutrition and arts education. Through our Grants Program, we provide support to eligible non-profit organizations across the United States that align with our mission and share our vision of “more kids working towards their fullest potential.”


We do this through three main focus areas:


Emeril's Culinary Garden & Teaching Kitchen

National education program that integrates culinary gardens and teaching kitchens in schools to create interactive learning environments centered on food.
