Eating in New Orleans is more than just Bourbon and beignets

Sustainable Food New Orleans

Grow Dat
On our farm we work collaboratively to produce healthy food for local residents and to inspire youth and adults to create personal, social and environmental change in their own communities. Grow Dat is a place where people from different backgrounds and disciplines come together in research and practice to support public health, local economies and a sustainable food system in South Louisiana.

New Orleans Food and Farm Network
We aim to build a local food economy, an economy that expands residents’ self-reliance through food production, uses land responsibly and sustainably, helps farmers make a living, and makes the needed connections among people, farms, and food. NOFFN is developing tools and coordinated action to support farming in greater New Orleans.
