BENEFITING: OUR SCHOOL AT BLAIR GROCERY INC
EVENT DATE: Aug 20, 2012
Situated in the lower 9th ward of New Orleans (an area that is still devastated by the implications of Hurricane Katrina), Our School At Blair Grocery works to employ and educate the surrounding community's youth about farming, food justice, and the “green revolution.” OSBG also provides fresh produce for the food desert of the lower 9th, and is able to sell its food to the local residents at low prices, made possible by the profits from the sale of some fresh ingredients to gourmet chefs and restaurants in the area. Though OSBG is using this high-paying resource well, they are still in much need for funds to put towards building a new chicken coop, a new aquaponics sytem, and many more resources that could be available to them with our help. Thank you!
