Invest in Community Health

A Collaborative Hub – Where Food and Health Meet


Our community-based nutrition and food skills programming and resources fill a critical gap. Rooted equips county residents with the knowledge, confidence and resources to prioritize, prepare and enjoy whole plant-based foods to build health equity and resilience, reduce medical expenses and medications, and grow quality of life. As a collaborative hub, partner, and resource for healthcare practitioners and direct service organizations serving our community members with the greatest barriers to good health, we do this through:

  • Low to no cost, bilingual, plant-forward nutrition and food skills education programs, tools, resources, and support,
  • Healthcare and community health worker training, and
  • Community collaborations to ensure accessibility and belonging, healthcare community engagement, healthy food access, and culturally relevant support to improve health outcomes county-wide.

We’re on a mission to reduce the burden of chronic disease, optimize health, and help our County residents eat to thrive. Join us and invest in community health.
