Serving Fresh, Healthy Food To Over 1,000 Youth
Our new program to supply healthy meals to local schoolchildren served 275 children at summer camps this summer. We are now serving daily breakfast and lunch to over 1,000 children at Lake Forest Elementary Charter School, Bricolage Academy of New Orleans and Milestone SABIS Academy of New Orleans.

Fresh Food Factor is headquartered at Volunteers of America's new 1700 Tchoupitoulas development, which also houses our Centennial Place apartments. With this new space, Volunteers of America will offer fresh and healthy meals to local schoolchildren. Helping prepare the food will be veterans participating in a job training course. Veterans transitioning out of homelessness, from our Veterans Transitional Housing Program, will learn food preparation and service skills to prepare for future jobs.
Centennial Place apartments, formerly the a Lykes Steamship factory, will offer 52 affordable studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. Visit the Centennial Place website.
