    Hi John! Would love to know more about your project. Why do you think it stands a part from the rest?

      Thanks for inquiring Alessandra - Jack & Jake's represents a hybrid food hub model that connects local growers and fishers with underserved communities who need access to healthy fresh foods at an affordable price. Our new food hub provides schools, universities, hospitals, and other institutions with local healthy food while also servicing a local neighborhood without a full service supermarket. The hub also serves as a flagship for servicing other inner urban neighborhood markets with fresh and healthy prepared foods. Our model also extends beyond servicing underserved communities by providing support for local growers and developing opportunities for them to access local markets. In short, this is how we are building a local food system and economy here in New Orleans. Please let me know if I can provide more detail.
