NOLA Defender was at the Grand Opening of Liberty’s Kitchen in our new home in the ReFresh Project to help tell our story! Youth Development Program Director Dennis Bagneris and Executive Director David Emond had words of wisdom about our new space:
“For me, the new space means potential. The potential to address more, to work more and deliver more. It’s not only about the good of the program, but nourishing the entitlement of our young people and organizing the community around them.”
Today’s ceremony served as a celebration for many and a chance for the community to take in the new Liberty’s Kitchen. The pride on current Executive Director David Emond’s face was evident as he introduced the “new chapter of Liberty’s Kitchen”. City Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell spoke to the crowd, but also to the students seated next to her — “You are worth it — it is all about improving life for young people. Because of you, we will continue to support Liberty’s Kitchen.”
Thanks to NOLA Defender for helping tell our story!
