“And hark! how blithe the throstle sings!
He, too, is no mean preacher:
Come forth into the light of things,
Let Nature be your teacher.”
The Tables Turned ~ William Wadsworth
The Roots Foundation was founded by Matt Parris, founder of Roots Hummus. Since 2006 Roots has been dedicated to creating pure food. There have been a lot of twist and turns in the road, but the guiding principle has always been to connect and heal people through the power of food. Through this medium, the vision of using the success of the business as a channel to connect people has never faded, and one result is the recent launch of The Roots Foundation. Roots Hummus has committed to a sustaining donation that will fund administrative expenses of the Roots Foundation, allowing for other donations to be dedicated more fully to our work.
“I watched my son get lost in the school system. The contrast of this to his curiosity and joy as he learned about the natural world was striking, and continues to be. Like so many parents, I want to help our schools become places that truly nurture and inspire our most precious resource – our children.”
