More Than Just a Location: The ReFresh Project

The Goldring Center for Culinary Medicine is strategically located within The ReFresh Project, a Community Health Hub located in Midcity, New Orleans. The building, located on North Broad Street at Bienville Avenue houses nine organizations working to achieve health equity in the surrounding neighborhoods.
