Roots is a social enterprise that tackles food insecurity and food waste in Nova Scotian communities through our Bundle Service. We purchase seconds produce in bulk from local farmers and sorted into 10lsb bundles which typically include root vegetables and fruits. This produce Bundles are sold in 16 communities across Nova Scotia with the help of our local franchise managers. Bundles are taken to franchises on the last Saturday of each month where they can be picked up!
