NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Emeril Lagasse Foundation has doled out $125,000 in spring grant awards to four New Orleans nonprofits that focus on food.

Nola.com/The Times-Picayune reports (https://bit.ly/1l1zQrK ) Cafe Hope, Cafe Reconcile, New Orleans Center for Creative Arts and Second Harvest Food Bank will share the award from the foundation.

In announcing Monday’s recipients, Lagasse said the grants “are a testament of our ongoing commitment to impacting kids’ lives in our community.”

Cafe Hope and Cafe Reconcile received money for their similar mission of providing job training for at-risk young adults. Second Harvest Food Bank received its grant to provide free breakfast to 4,000 low-income children enrolled in summer camps and to help expand its Kids Cafe program. NOCCA’s grant will provide uniforms and equipment for students in the high school culinary program.
