Rooted Santa Barbara County
At our core…
We aspire to shift healthcare from a treatment-based approach to one that leads with prevention.
Our organization empowers individuals in our community to take a leading role in their own health. We do this by providing low-to-no-cost nutrition and food skills education and a network of community support to encourage healthy, plant-centered lifestyles.
Every individual has a right to education, support, fresh fruit and vegetables – no matter what their socioeconomic background. We’re a stronger community when we’re all healthy.
The power of healthy food connects us.
