Our Mission and Vision
New Roots ignites communities to come together, share knowledge, and build relationships with farmers to secure access to fresh food.
New Roots' vision is that affordable fresh food is accessible and enjoyed year round in the communities we serve.
Fresh Stops were created to address the lack of fresh produce in Louisville neighborhoods. The Fresh Stop Project is a community-driven fresh food access project where families pool their money and SNAP benefits to purchase in bulk from local farmers on a sliding scale. Each family receives a “share” of seasonal produce which feeds 2-4 people, depending on the Fresh Stop. New Root's food justice classes are offered periodically during the year and are training grounds for neighborhood leaders who want to drive, lead and sustain the Fresh Stops.
New Roots has already implemented five successful community Fresh Stops in Louisville, and mentored one in Washington, D.C.

"What you brought has changed my life forever and my daughter's life. We think about food in a whole different way now. We are more aware of what we are putting in our bodies. For me, this Fresh Stop has saved my life. My diabetes is more under control, I'm losing weight and I am learning as I go. As for my daughter, she tries new veggies now that she would have never done in the past and in fact she asks for them."
