Healthy Communities

Healthy Communities is an LSU AgCenter initiative that makes Louisiana towns healthier places to live, work, learn and play. Local residents decide what the important issues are and come up with possible solutions. The community works together to make healthy foods accessible and affordable, and ensure that physical activity is safe, accessible, and fun for all. Join the initiative to help make the healthy choice the easy choice in your community.
