Louisiana is known for its tremendous cuisine, but today’s episode will spotlight a
barbecue team that’s helping save lives through their cooking. The Swine Krewe is

a nonprofit organization based in New Orleans that helps raise money for children
battling brain cancer across the country. Every dollar they raise helps advance
the Hogs for a Cause fundraising mission, and we want to tell you all about the
work they’re doing in this episode.
The anticipation is tangible as we gear up for the upcoming Hogs for the Cause
event. Our guests Owen and Robert from Swine Krewe, detail the meticulous
preparation that goes into this great local live event, from year-round practice to
the strategic planning of the menu, Get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes
to participate in this competition and learn how you can support the cause,
whether by attending the event at UNO on April 5th and 6th or by donating to the
Swine Krewe team. It's a testament to the dedication and passion that drives

grateful for the work they all do.
