Fresh Central Website Local Resource for Food Consumers, Growers

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5)--Are you looking to buy local food or sell your own produce? Freshcentral.org is a community resource for both consumers and growers.

The goal for the site is to help anyone looking for information about food growers and producers in central Louisiana. 

"If you are a small-scale producer, it's really hard to sell that produce, far away. and it could be difficult to sell it here locally, too.  So, if you want to make the most money, the best way to do that is to sell it directly to your customers and without the customer knowing where to find that produce, that's virtually impossible," CLEDA member John Dean said.

Fresh Central is a project of the Central Louisiana Local Foods Initiative, a program funded by a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation Challenge Grant and the Rapides Foundation.
