After a six month construction process, Liberty’s Kitchen has reopened to the public at its new 10,000 square foot location in the ReFresh Project, a “fresh food hub” anchored by Whole Foods Market at 300 N. Broad Street.
The expanded space will enable the organization to double its Youth Development and School Nutrition programs’ capacities within three years. This opportunity translates to 200 Liberty’s Kitchen students per year and up to 3,500 students served daily with healthy meals, totaling more than 1.4 million meals per year!
The new Liberty’s Kitchen facility features a state of the art Emeril Lagasse Foundation Teaching Kitchen, classroom, office space, and retail café and coffee shop serving Starbucks coffee.
Initial hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., featuring breakfast pastries, bagels and full lunch menu with salads, sandwiches, burgers, and traditional New Orleans fare.
Private parties of 10 to 20 can be accommodated for breakfast, lunch, or dinner events. A full catering service is also available for offsite events.
Liberty’s Kitchen’s expansion into the ReFresh Project will provide additional opportunities to enhance and sustain its programs, including groundbreaking partnerships with tenants Whole Foods Market and Tulane University’s Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine.
At 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 26, Liberty’s Kitchen staff and students invite the community to celebrate a grand opening with them in the ReFresh parking lot. Liberty’s Kitchen’s expansion is made possible with leadership support from Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Emeril Lagasse Foundation, Fox Family Foundation, Arena Energy Foundation, Caesars Foundation, Libby Dufour Fund, RosaMary Foundation, Ella West Freeman Foundation, Frischhertz Electric Company, Woodward Design+Build, Domain Companies, Selley Foundation, Mrs. E.M. Gorence, Walter Robb, and Boh Brothers Centennial Fund.
