Teach. Nourish. Empower.
Liberty’s Kitchen provides New Orleans young people with pathways to create and achieve their vision of success through workforce training, leadership development, and support of healthy lifestyles.
Liberty’s Kitchen’s Youth Development Program provides opportunity youth with workforce and life skills training to become employed and self-sufficient. We empower them in a culinary setting with the resources, tools, and the confidence to transform their lives. Our cafe located at 300 N Broad serves both as the training ground for our young people and as a means of generating revenue for our programming.
Through our School Nutrition Program, we provide local school children with healthy, scratch-made meals prepared fresh onsite at their schools. By ensuring that low-income students have access to better nutrition and nutrition education in school, Liberty’s Kitchen contributes to the fight to end the epidemic of childhood obesity and increase youth achievement.
