Healthy Supper Bowl Jam

The New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic and Assistance Foundation (NOMAF) is proud to announce their collaboration with Ashé Cultural Arts Center to produce another foodtastic Healthy Supper Bowl Jam, highlighting wholesome foods, cooking methods and suggestions for healthy lifestyle changes. The event is part of NOMAF’s Prevent Death by Lifestyle initiative.

Following the success of our last Supper Bowl Jam, NOMAF is taking the event to another neighborhood—Central City. On Thursday, November 8th, 5:30-8:00 p.m., at Ashé Cultural Arts Center (1712 Oretha C. Haley Blvd.) NOMAF and Ashé will be offering up fantastic, healthy and affordable food from Nola Girl, La Cocinita and more. Our goal is to bring families together in a wonderful, safe environment with affordable, healthy food options. The event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. with old school music by DJ Captain Charles, followed with live music by Bamboula 2000 at 6:45 p.m. Join members of Sistahs Making a Change who will get things stirred up with line dances, old school moves, second-lines and more.

We encourage all chefs, restaurateurs, waiters, cultural workers, musicians, artists, health advocates and the community at-large to come and enjoy the reasonably-priced, healthy food.

The Supper Bowl Jam is free and open to the public. Call (504) 569-9070 for more information.

We do this through providing access to health and social services through the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic, regardless of musicians’ ability to pay, and by fostering cultural opportunities that advocate for and support this effort.
