The New Roots Immigrant Project is a pilot project working alongside immigrants to address the unique ways immigrants experience food insecurity.

The project features the New Roots Immigrant Kitchen, a space for immigrants to learn, cook and share good food with the community; a monthly New Roots Affordable Produce Market, featuring culturally relevant produce, meals and ingredients sourced from retailers along International Ave; listen and learn events to explore issues important to immigrant communities and to spark resident-led action.
