No Hunger NOLA
Did you know 40% of the food produced in the U.S. becomes fodder for the landfill? Did you know 1 in 5 New Orleanians faces food insecurity daily? No Hunger NOLA knows and they’re doing something about it! A non-profit, culinary initiative with a mission to “eradicate hunger and food access disparities in New Orleans neighborhoods”. No Hunger NOLA rescues would-be food waste to make flavorful preserves, marmalades, pickles and ferments like grapefruit marmalade, honey pickled peppers, and green chile pepper jelly. CCFM welcomes this conscientious vendor to our Mid City Market the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. Come on by and say hi! Pick up something yummy for yourself and help to make a difference for someone else!
