Community Plates of New Orleans uses technology and local volunteers to deliver food to the hungry.

As New Orleans continues to build its reputation as a hub for innovation and new technologies, WWNO’s Technology Desk seeks to highlight innovators who are finding novel solutions to some of the city’s most important issues.

Innovations Reporter Janaya Williams recently spoke with Lauren Rudzis of Community Plates, a nonprofit that is tapping into the resources of the food and restaurant community in New Orleans to find a new system to deliver food to the hungry.

Lauren Rudzis is a 2014 fellow at Propeller, a Broadmoor nonprofit that supports social ventures in New Orleans.
