HUMAN Factor

LOCAL Factor​

Fresh, healthful food is a basic human right, and Volunteers of America is taking huge strides to make that right a reality though its Fresh Food Factor program. The headquarters of Fresh Food Factor is an 8,500 square foot commercial kitchen located in the historic Lykes Steamship District in New Orleans’ Lower Garden District. Through this kitchen, we serve healthy meals to local students on a daily basis. We pride ourselves in developing close working relationships with school partners in the community and delivering excellent customer service.

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 students that a healthy lifestyle begins with good eating habits balanced by exercise, diet, and the connection to mind, body, and spirit. By providing students the opportunity to eat healthy, delicious food, we enable them to make similar positive choices for a lifetime.

WOW Factor​

Fresh Food Factor thrives on food. We do not compromise on the quality of our food. We emphasize scratch cooking with tender loving care. The Fresh Food Factor central kitchen allows all menus to be replicated for taste profile. Fresh Food Factor has a vast array of recipes that feature child-favorites as well as rotations for variety. This is truly unique.
