Saluting a Great Partner--Rapides soil and Water Conservation District

February 22, 2017


The Good Food Project, an initiative to build community gardens and encourage people to grow their own healthy food, as a program of The Food Bank of Central Louisiana, has partnered with the Rapides Soil and Water Conservation District to assist schools with garden start-up costs since early in the life of the project--December 2011.


Max C. Johnston, Chairman of the RSWCD Board of Supervisors' best state the value of this long-standing partnership: "The Good Food Project has many parallels with our mission of educating children in Rapides Parish in aspects of soil and water conservation, and we are pleased to make it financially easier for schools to get involved."


Participating schools receive $200 to offset the costs of beginning a garden. As of January 2017, GFP has installed 14 school gardens in Rapides Parish thanks in part to this generous donation from  RSWCD.  Inquiries about installing a school garden should be made to The Good Food Project by calling (318)445-2773 or emailing
