The We Live to Eat campaign was designed to raise awareness of New Orleans' unique culinary industry, which is at the heart of the city's identity. In New Orleans, we don't eat to live-we live to eat. Cuisine is a part of who we are. This movement's theme is therefore centered on supporting local restaurants and exploring the art and enjoyment of our dining scene, so central to life and culture in New Orleans.
