Root ‘n’ Fruit is a community food initiative that links together schools, businesses and people from the community, to help them to learn about, grow, and eat, fruit and vegetables.
Our hub is a 600sqm allotment in Middleport, Stoke-on-Trent, where we grow fruit and veg, and run allotment gardening sessions for schools and community groups.
All the fruit and veg that we grow is donated, free-of-charge, to people in the local community who are experiencing food crisis – a sort of fresh-food bank, if you will.
Alongside the produce that we grow ourselves, Root ‘n’ Fruit also co-ordinates the collection, re-distribution and donation of surplus produce grown on other allotments across North Staffs.
Root ‘n’ Fruit is run by volunteers, and is financed through fundraising and with contributions made by our Partners.
If you would like to join our band of volunteers, or if your group or business might like to get involved with Root ‘n’ Fruit in some way, please get in touch using the form on our Contact page.
We’d love to hear from you!
