Broad Community Connections

Established in 2008 in order to address long-standing community revitalization needs that were only exacerbated after Hurricane Katrina, Broad Community Connections aims to revitalize New Orleans’ Broad Street corridor by promoting the economic, residential and cultural development of its diverse surrounding neighborhoods.  One of the nonprofit’s core initiatives is the ReFresh Project, a fresh food hub.  Opened in October 2014, the hub provides healthy and affordable food to the Broad Street neighborhoods, offers community engaged programming, education and training designed to promote health and wellness, and serves as an anchor for workforce and economic development along the Broad Street corridor.
