New Orleans is a worldwide food destination that loses millions in food dollars to corporations. Studies estimate that each dollar spent on local food can recirculate as much as $1.3 - $2.6 back into a local economy (Lynch et al., 2015). Plus, local food tastes better, is healthier, and contributes to a more sustainable and resilient community.
