The LiveWell Louisiana website is the online presence for the united efforts behind LiveWell Louisiana.​

Leadership and stores in the Winn-Dixie New Orleans region have joined other community organizations to launch LiveWell Louisiana. Through the partnership, Winn-Dixie will highlight pharmacy offerings and showcase fresh, organic and natural food options while fostering healthier customers.

This community-minded program teams Winn-Dixie stores with local partners to encourage healthier lifestyles for children and adults. LiveWell Louisiana is an online community of citizens, doctors, hospitals, non-profit organizations and government agencies working together to get the health of Louisiana’s communities back on track. The program is the first inclusive health initiative in the state to bring together so many different organizations with one goal - to empower more Louisianans to make healthier choices through education, support and encouragement.

Winn-Dixie is an integral part of the program and is helping to teach members of the community about healthier choices. This integrated program features in-store food and nutrition tours, an interactive menu planner, health screenings, wellness and disease prevention education, supportive online communities and more.

“Winn-Dixie has always strived to provide fresh, local foods to our customers,” Winn-Dixie Regional Vice President Karena Niblett said. “Through a partnership with LiveWell Louisiana, our pharmacists can better provide tools and resources in partnership with our neighborhood health care providers. We are proud to be a part of an incredible group of organizations focusing on making Louisiana healthy, strong and vibrant.”

Winn-Dixie has included LiveWell Louisiana displays in stores in the state, and customers can pick up information that includes health tips and healthy recipes.

“Louisiana is 49thof the 50 states in terms of overall health,” said Maria Muro, LiveWell Louisiana Founder. “Through the LiveWell Louisiana initiative, we will heal as a state.”
