There’s something special about someone who grows food, as if some magical power exists in their hands. Now imagine that power in the hands of a child. Imagine walking past rows of different crops, from tomatoes and lettuce to kale and eggplant, and realizing that all of this was accomplished by a New Orleans child.
 
Yep, there is such a place at the Edible Schoolyard New Orleans (ESYNOLA), a program aimed at changing the way kids “eat, learn, and live” in New Orleans by promoting healthier lifestyles.

Amidst the “greenness” of Samuel J. Green Charter School’s vegetable garden, last week, young New Orleans professionals were treated to a night of music, mingling, and a four-course menu courtesy of Dinner Lab of poached Gulf shrimp, smoked pork terrine, acorn squash agnolotti, cauliflower steak, fig glazed duck thigh, and pumpkin panna cotta at Dinner After the Bell!, a fundraising event in support of FirstLine Schools and sponsored by Circular Consulting, LLC.  
 
Attendees to Dinner After the Bell! included dozens of New Orleans professionals. Brian Egana, FirstLine Schools Vice Chair of the Board and President and Chief Executive/Financial Officer of Circular Consulting, LLC, said, “As a member of the Board of Directors, I felt not only compelled to invite colleagues, but also to sponsor the event because this is a young professionals event specifically. I wanted to be in support of encouraging young professionals to be more aware of the great things that FirstLine is doing.”

The partnership between FirstLine Schools, a series of five charter schools in the city, and Dinner Lab, a pop up dining event, may seem a little strange at first, but nonetheless interesting.
 
FirstLine Schools operates five open-enrollment public charter schools in New Orleans: Arthur Ashe Charter School, Phillis Wheatley Community School, S. J. Green Charter School, Langston Hughes Academy, and Clark Prep High School. These five schools serve 2,400 young New Orleanians from every part of the city and “offer innovative programs for students, including the nationally acclaimed Edible Schoolyard New Orleans.”
