Roots for Life is a grassroots volunteer organization that was founded  in 2017 to educate and empower communities to thrive by eradicating food deserts and food insecurity.

Rhonda and Tamara come from diverse nonprofit backgrounds, but both are driven by the same goal  --  to inspire others to make small, incremental changes in their daily lives through fresh fruits and vegetables. Their work is centered in food insecure areas in Washington, D.C., specifically Wards 4, 5, 7 and 8.

MISSION

To dedicate resources to educate and empower communities to thrive nutritiously by eradicating food deserts and food insecurity.

VISION

We want you to be inspired to make a change.

THE APPROACH

To education and empowerment in communities is multi-faceted:

  • connect individuals, currently in food insecure areas, to locally grown fruits
    and vegetables

  • educate on their nutritional value

  • empower a healthy change their lives

As Rhonda and Tamara  designed their program series, they strategically incorporated ways to empower participants and encourage them to incorporate fresh produce into their day-to-day regimen.

With each program, participants will learn how to:

  • make healthy food choices

  • cook nutritious meals

  • grow foods through fun hands-on activities
