New Orleans and South Louisiana have a rich tradition of gathering, and food plays a major part in bringing people together. When people gather and eat, they inevitably talk about the issues of the day. For many people that means what is happening in their own backyards. Local news as it were. 

We will bring that spirit of community sharing to this event, in our new offices. Get to know us and we get to know you and what you would like to see from The Lens.

Karen Gadbois, our founder, will share her famous meatballs and we invite you to bring your favorite dessert. 

Please join us and reply to Anne Mueller to let us know if you’re bringing a dessert. 

Can’t make it but appreciate what we do? Consider making a gift.
