New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation
Since the beginning of the rebuilding of Slow Food New Orleans, we have had an ongoing partnership with the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation. The innovative NOMAF provides free medical, health, and wellness services to New Orleans musicians. The NOMAF’s wellness program is entitled “Death by Lifestyle”. Slow Food New Orleans and NOMAF hosted the inaugural “Death by Lifestyle Supper Bowl” on Monday October 1, 2012 at the Mid-City Lanes Rock n Bowl, a New Orleans landmark entertainment venue. Slow Food New Orleans sponsored slow food and NOMAF sponsored the music. Rock n Bowl was the perfect venue for this event as they source grass fed beef from their own farm and grow vegetables in the lot next door. The hope is that the Monday Supper Bowl will become a monthly event that allows musicians, restauranteur and growers to come together with the public on what is traditionally an off-night in all three industries.
