Scotlandville community identified as the largest "Food Desert" in Baton Rouge
The Together Baton Rouge (TBR) Food Access Team is working to bring a high-quality grocery store to Scotlandville, to address this food desert.
The TBR is conducting a "Food Access Survey" to demonstrate the need and the support for better food access in North Baton Rouge. Several congregations are planning a SURVEY SUNDAY on the Sunday before Christmas, to share this information and build a large base of survey participants.
Citizens located in, or near Scotlandville are encouraged to participate in the SURVEY SUNDAY-December 18. The survey is attached.
For more information, or to arrange dropping off completed surveys, please contact Edgar Cage, co-chair of the TBR Food Access Team, at (225)774-7979. Details are available on the website of Together Baton Rouge: www.togetherbr.org
