Growing Together

Join us this Fall for our annual Growing Together event, an evening full of great food, entertainment, and fun!

Just Roots Chicago was formed in 2017 with the vision that every person could access their right to food that benefits their health, community, and environment. This year, we are celebrating 5 years of work  at our annual fundraising event, Growing Together! The event features fresh, organically grown produce from our farms, with meals specially curated by local chefs. It’s sure to be one of the freshest and most delicious meals you’ve ever had. 

Over the past 5 years we’ve:

  • Grown and distributed over 40,000 pounds of organic, culturally relevant produce to Chicagoans. 
  • Provided educational programming and volunteer opportunities for over 1,000 adult and student learners. 
  • Hosted over 10 community events
  • Built the Saint James Community Farm and It Takes A Village Community Farm

Food insecurity affects 1 in 7 people in Cook County. Sustainable food access not only has a positive impact on health outcomes, but also has a holistic, generational effect in local communities by cultivating more green space, equipping people with the skills and resources to grow their own food, creating jobs and training opportunities, and building community.
