Top Box Foods is a community-based non-profit with a simple purpose: to make healthy food affordable and accessible to all.
The Makin' Groceries Program uses an innovative supply chain model to deliver healthy and affordable grocery boxes to neighborhoods throughout New Orleans and Baton Rouge, especially those located in low-income/access areas. We build strategic partnerships with local community organizations and places of worship, establishing them as delivery sites where members and neighbors can pick up grocery boxes with products such as fresh fruits and vegetables along with frozen meats, fish, and poultry.
The Healthy Corner Store Collaborative doubles as a business development and public health initiative. We work alongside corner store operators in areas with limited food access to increase the amount of fresh, healthy foods offered in-stores. Program components include produce distribution, technical assistance, capacity enhancement, marketing materials and nutrition education so that the produce offered is "Good 2 Go."
