Dinner in the Field
April 30 at the Baton Rouge Gallerry Tickets Here
We pursue this vision primairly through educational outreach in both local schools and the community.
In 2013, Slow Food Baton Rouge started Baton Rouge's only comprehensive Farm To School program, Greauxing Healthy Baton Rouge, hosted free classes for the public, engaged the community about local food systems. Our previous activities were only possible through funding received from the Blue Cross/ Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation, from a USDA grant in partnership with EBR Public Schools, and from a small grant from the Whole Kids Foundation. We receive in-kind support from the Baton Rouge Whole Foods Market. We appreciate further support from the community in order to continue our programs!
BUT as we enter many of our programs' third year, our most important funder will be YOU. This past year, funds raised from the 2015 Dinner in the Field and Slow Food Fall Heat helped us hire Todd Whatley. Please be on teh lookout for future events that support BRLA's only comprehensive Farm to School programs.
