Rooted in Appalachia encourages consumers to connect with the farmers that are growing and raising their food. Local businesses, restaurants and hospital systems partner to share their  commitment to creating a strong local food culture.  In doing so, local communities thrive because money spent locally stays local, people have more access to fresh, healthy food and farming is valued as a niche economic development driver.
