Mission Statement

New Britain ROOTS, a youth engaged nonprofit, aims to fight food insecurity by making healthy food accessible and affordable. ROOTS works collaboratively with New Britain schools to provide educational programs on sustainable agriculture, food justice, and healthy eating practices. ROOTS also works with Urth Farms, a local urban farm to connect youth to organic food production. The ROOTS Mobile Farmers Market makes stops in neighborhoods that have limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables. ROOTS partners with local organizations in New Britain to make the Mobile Market accessible to city residents

Description

ROOTS serves greater New Britain, Connecticut, a community rich with resources, to help empower our neighbors to take control of their food choices. By encouraging all people to increase their knowledge of our local food system, we can work together to improve it. We seek to bridge resources between farms, social service agencies, schools, and local businesses to build a more just food system.
