Food Brings People Together
We embrace COMMUNITY as one of the crucial ties that connect us, whether by neighborhood, common interest, or belief. In times of plenty, as well as times of crisis, the bonds of community benefit us all as we share what we can contribute, support each other, and look out for our common interests. Healthy, nutritious food is one of the fundamental things that we all require and we invite ALL Tulare County residents to join us at our table!
Nutrition Education 🧑🏽🍳
Nutrition Education offers classes and online resources for all ages to learn about healthy living and eating. We partner with local schools and organizations to offer classes both in person and online. Some topics we cover include (but are not limited to): low-sodium cooking, food preservation and reducing food waste, diabetic-friendly cooking, cooking with kids, meal planning + prep, healthy cooking on a budget, and much more!
Grow Your Own Food 🍅
Food sovereignty means being a part of every step of the food on your plate. Our DEEP ROOTS program aims to do just that right here in Tulare County — we offer support for building local, healthy, sustainable food systems outside of industrial agriculture. All programming is free and centers our most impacted community members.
We know the safest communities are the most connected communities - connected to each other, to the land, and the abundance of ancestral knowledge that reminds us everything we need we already have.
