A Chat with Cafe Hope
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
As a faith-based organization rooted in our nonprofit restaurant, we’ve created an establishment designed for full-service culinary training partnered with life skills courses that gives New Orleans’ opportunity youth the confidence to have fulfilling futures as leaders in their community.
What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?
As the only seed-to-table restaurant on New Orleans’ Westbank, Café Hope has created a community garden—just outside of the restaurant—that provides much of the produce used in the restaurant’s dishes each day. Many of our top dishes are freshly made with our own produce!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We were looking for an organization that could help opportunity youth on the West Bank, something similar to New Orleans’ Cafe Reconcile. So in 2010, we made our dream a reality with the launch of Cafe Hope!
What do you love most about your job?
We love working with the students and preparing them for futures in the culinary and hospitality industries. What’s truly amazing is that they can go beyond those fields and become whatever they’d like to be; we’re just happy to help get them there.
