NEW ORLEANS (WGNO)- Congrats to Cafe’ Reconcile for taking home 1st Place in the Pitch It Innovation Challenge.

Director of Development Kelder Summer-Jones’ team came up with the idea of converting a double-decker bus into a “busteraunt” where fresh food is served.

Upstairs on the bus, there will be cooking demonstrations, and nutrition classes!

The “busteraunt” will go to some of the city’s poorest neighborhoods.

Café Reconcile won the first place prize worth $25,000 at Pitch It! The Innovation Challenge. Second place prize worth $8,000 was awarded to the National Alliance on Mental Illness St. Tammany and third place prize worth $5,500 was awarded to Committee for a Better New Orleans.

Pitch It! The Innovation Challenge, a project of the Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Organizational Effectiveness initiative in partnership with The Kresge Foundation, Chevron, Uber, and with contributions from the Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Partners in Philanthropy annual campaign, supports breakthrough ideas in the nonprofit field by encouraging nonprofits to think outside the box to discover new and innovative ways to address our community’s needs.
