Healthy Food for Growing Friendships
At Dragonfly Café, we believe that food is one of the most powerful ways to build community with one another. We welcome people of all abilities to come together to share nourishing and locally-sourced meals, create beautiful memories, and forge friendships that will last a lifetime.
Building Community with One Another
Dragonfly Café is a social enterprise of Raphael Village, a New Orleans-based organization providing education, life-skills, and vocational training opportunities for children and adults with exceptionalities.
Dragonfly Café is just one of Raphael Village’s social enterprises that support individuals with exceptionalities to help them flourish in their personal development. Like the dragonfly, our students and Guild members are on a path of self realization and transformation.
From Garden to Table
Dragonfly Café believes in the power of nourishing the whole person in mind, body, and spirit, as well as in the importance of sustainability. That’s why we are proud to serve meals made from quality, local ingredients, some of which are grown in our very own garden, as well as seasonal menu items that align with our local growing seasons.
Dragonfly Café also partners with Sheaux Fresh , a local, family-owned purveyor dedicated to providing high-quality, organically-grown, and sustainably-sourced local and regional products. Since 2011, Sheaux Fresh has worked to provide unmatched quality and variety in the selections they offer. Our partnership with Sheaux Fresh will allow them to serve and support even more of our community with their expanded offerings.
Raphael Village’s mission is to support differently-abled people in becoming fully engaged in life and community.
