The Nola Food collection is my debut collection for Carla Gordon Art. It is inspired by my hometown of New Orleans, LA. New Orleans is known for many things (the music, the architecture and Mardi Gras to name a few).
Most famously, New Orleans is known for its cuisine. The food is my favorite aspect about the city. Every time I visit New Orleans, I have a list of things that I must eat!
With this collection, I showcase my favorite New Orleans dishes and treats. Since it is all about food, I decided to connect this collection to a charity whose mission is to combat hunger. More specifically, as a pediatrician, I feel it is important to bring light to childhood hunger. No Kid Hungry does just that.
No Kids Hungry is a national charity with a simple and strong mission: no kid in America should go hungry. They strive to achieve this mission through various outreach programs that range from local impact to policy influence.

Donations to No Kid Hungry provide grants, supplies, and technical assistance to feed kids. The donations fund their work to recruit new summer meal sites, help schools provide breakfast for kids facing hunger and teach families how to prevent hunger at home (source: No Kids Hungry FAQ).
For the Nola Food collection, 20% of all sales will be donated to No Kids Hungry. Please follow this link to shop the collection.
