Stand with Roots Cafe to Support our Neighbors

Dear friends and Family,

How do we stand together if social distancing keeps us 6 feet apart

We stand together with shared mission:

We would like to take advantage of all the empty tables right now in our cafe and use them as a food pantry for our neighbors and community. We would also like to be able to provide free soup and sandwiches to anyone in need.  We want to invite you to stand with us by supporting  us in feeding our neighborhood. 

You can also help by coming to the shop and donating pantry items.
Drop off between 9-3, Monday-Friday.

The money we raise from this fundraiser will provide free lunch for anyone that needs it, provide items for our  food pantry, as well as help to help ease the burden on our staff whom we love. 

Any amount will help.
We love you all!

Gareth and Patricia
