JTRA's Core Value

CEO and Creative Director, Debra S. Jones started JTRA in a one car garage in 1999. Seeing the amount of hungry people in New Orleans, her city, moved her to not only wish she could do more, but actually do more for her people. Servicing others is the only result JTRA cares for.

"At JTRA we value everyone. Our meals and services reach the deepest areas of poverty stricken communities. Our foods are fresh. The smiles and heartfelt emotions are indescribable." ~Debra S. Jones

JTRA's Vision

People continue to suffer and struggle with homelessness and hunger and the latest government shutdown impacted millions domestically. That is Thousands in the New Orleans and surrounding areas.  JTRA's views have not changed  and we are committed to staying on the cutting edge in our battle to STOMP OUT HUNGER. We will continue to evolve, and we are most excited about today, tomorrow and beyond! Our sponsors include: New Orleans Artists Against Homelessness and Hunger (NOAAHH), America's Mortgage Resource, United Way, Crossway Christian Center, and the George Shields
