“We are excited to be a part of this amazing effort," explains Graves, "It's great for business and the state.”

The parcels come together with the help of Louisiana artists, chefs, musicians, and craftspeople selecting 7 to 10 Louisiana tokens that can be shipped just about anywhere. The state's legendary hospitality and culture is captured through the hard work of its people in all walks of life. The owner and operator of Parish Parcel, Jaci Russo, says to truly share a Cajun experience you have to start with the Cajun people, "It's at the heart of what we are trying to do with Parish Parcel, we want to give Louisiana owned businesses a chance to find a national audience and national distribution."
