About Fresh Central

local produce


Central Louisiana's home for local, fresh, and delicious food. Fresh Central is a community resource for both consumers and producers alike that aims to help anyone seeking information about local food in Central Louisiana.
Fresh Central is part of the Central Louisiana Local Food Initiative, a community effort that aims to strengthen Central Louisiana’s local food economy while increasing access to local food for all residents of the region. The initiative was created in 2012 with a Challenge for a Healthier Louisiana Grant from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation of Louisiana and matching funding from The Rapides Foundation. The initiative is being continued through funding from a Healthy Behaviors Program Grant from The Rapides Foundation, the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, and a philanthropic investment from Keller Enterprises, LLC. It is connected by the Central Louisiana Economic Development Alliance.
