Roots Community Market Report

Thanks to your support, the Roots Community Market has been able to provide fresh produce, vegetables, and shelf stable foods to over 500 families! We have now received 20 donations to our project totaling $2,100.

The Roots Community Market provides healthy foods to many of our members, including patients who have complex care needs,  unsheltered individuals, and other community members that are in need of extra assistance for themselves and/or their families. For example, our Oakland Street Team Outreach Medical Program (Oakland STOMP) team brings unsheltered patients to Roots every Wednesday to shop at the Roots Community Market, be seen by a medical provider, sign up for housing services, and enroll in benefits. To learn more about Oakland STOMP, click here: Roots Oakland STOMP.

We are also proud to announce that we have added Roots Community Market as a training site for Roots interns. Roots interns have graduated from our Clean360 apprenticeship program, and subsequently receive their Food Handlers Certification and learn basic store management principles. Integrating our workforce programming into the market is one of the many ways we are working to make Roots Community Market a sustainable component of Roots Community Health Center!

Above, check out Ms. Sherry, one of our market employees helping one of our members to get her healthy food bag!

Thank you for your generosity and support to in making the Roots Community Market a sustainable and reliable healthy food resource to increasing numbers of community members in need. Stay tuned for future updates from the Roots Community Market!

Sincerely,
The Roots Family
