The Dignity Rescue Project is a collaborative effort between the Crescent City Cafe and No Hunger NOLA to create a gathering place that combats both hunger and food waste in New Orleans.
The Crescent City Cafe is reducing food insecurity by opening a Pay-What-You-Can Community Cafe where all can enjoy a nourishing meal with dignity and a sense of community. No Hunger NOLA is a canning company using food waste to fight food access disparities by making healthy, value-added products from would-be waste. The Community Cafe and No Hunger NOLA will share kitchen space, utilize rescued excess produce, and collaborate for increased environmental and sustainability impacts. Sharing space and joining forces lets us provide nourishment to anyone regardless of their ability to pay as well as reduce food waste.
