Healthy Eats – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

When people say “New Orleans is known for its food” they mostly mean restaurants. From iconic places like Commander’s, to your favorite hole-in-the-wall poboy joint.

What we are less known for in New Orleans is healthy food. But like so much else here, that’s changing.

One of the reasons for that change is a company called Supereats. At Supereats they make what they call “snacks with a purpose.”

Healthy snack food might sound like an oxymoron, but SuperEats is a successful young company who’s co-founder, Aaron Gailmor, joins Peter Ricchiuti for lunch.

When we last met Megan Nuismer Herrington she was the founder of the New Orleans Fruit Tree Project. They harvest fruit from trees that produce more than the tree owner can eat and distribute it to folks who don’t have access to fruit trees. Now Megan is doing the same kind of thing on a bigger scale, with Second Harvest Food Bank.
