Our mission is simple...

Volunteers of America Greater New Orleans is a non-profit human service organization that helps people in need throughout 16 parishes in southeast Louisiana.


Why Fresh Food Factor

With increased pressure to cut costs, schools and care facilities are being forced to make decisions about their meal programs that often involve relying on vendors who provide processed convenience foods instead of natural, fresh produce.

Fresh Food Factor provides healthy sustenance through a holistic service model. Our goal is to not only provide a fresh and healthy meal, but also to teach residents that a healthy lifestyle begins with good eating habits. By providing consumers the opportunity to try healthy, delicious food, we enable them to make positive choices for a lifetime.


Wow Factor


The headquarters of Fresh Food Factor is an 8,000-square foot commercial kitchen located in the historic Lykes Steamship District in New Orleans' Lower Garden District.

Through this state-of-the-art kitchen, we will serve local students and residents healthy meals on a daily basis. We pride ourselves on developing close working relationships with partners in the community and delivering excellent customer service.

Volunteers of America is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping those in need live healthy, safe and productive lives.

Since 1896, Volunteers of America has supported and empowered America's most vulnerable groups, including seniors, people with disabilities, at-risk youth, homeless individuals and families, those recovering from addictions, veterans and many others. Our work touches the mind, body, heart and ultimately the spirit of those we serve, integrating our deep compassion with highly effective programs and services.
