We believe local food access is essential for communities to thrive, ensuring that everyone has access to fresh and healthy food options that improve community health and reduce environmental impact.

Education
We provide knowledge and skills that ensure a sustainable future, as education is the most powerful tool for personal and social development.

Shining the Spotlight on Rooted In’s Chef’s Table at the Market Program
The Chef’s Table at the Market program kicks off this fall with locally crafted recipes on the Rooted In Inc. website for our community to use to shop at farmers’ markets.

The Chef’s Table will be at the farmers’ markets this winter with a rotating lineup of chefs cooking up recipes that inspire our community to cook with local ingredients, strengthening the relationship between producer and consumer.

Chef’s Table Mission:
To improve access to healthy food, promote health and well-being through food education, remove barriers to cooking with local products, promote and expand our local sustainable food system through partnerships, and increase SNAP participation at farmers markets.
