Welcome to Eat Well - Live Local

The purpose of this website is to inform people about the health of the food system in Northwest Louisiana.

Our Food System affects far more than just what shows up on plates for dinner or lunch. It has an important impact on every aspect of our economy and our health and well-being.

The mission of the Food System Takforce is to help all of our citizens envision what a healthy community food system can and will look like in our area. We are meeting with neighbors, officials, professionals, educators, and businesspeople to make sure that all of our needs and dreams are a part of the big picture. We are exploring what our resources and challenges are right now, and what best practices other communities have used to address those challenges.

We are creating a document that includes all of our research, visionary ideas and suggestions. You can download a copy of the current version from this website.

As you can see, it is not complete! There is much that we need to learn about our resources and the choices we need to make. We need your help. If you have ideas or would like to contribute time and creativity, please let us know.
