Our Youth Development Program trainees begin their journey at Broad Street but it doesn’t end there. They spend time at Poydras, increasing their customer service and culinary skillset. As alumni, they’ll help us move the needle on food access.
Over the years, we’ve made lots of friends who have helped us reach more people with healthy food. In 2017, we began working with Top Box Foods New Orleans to supply community pick up points with affordable grocery boxes. In the same year, we joined the Healthy Corner Store Collaborative, working with our partners to make it possible for corner stores to sell fresh produce in areas without affordable and convenient access. We also enhance our training via our externship and Career Track partners, who provide extended opportunities for youth to advance their skills and careers.
