Nourish Your Roots


A farm-to-school fundraiser


Nourish Your Roots is a farm-to-school fundraiser created and facilitated by Nourish Nova Scotia to help schools support their own healthy eating programs and initiatives.

Students sell boxes of fresh produce from local farms to their family and the greater community. Farmers are paid fairly, families enjoy fresh local harvest and have the opportunity to try new foods. It’s a win-win-win for farmers, schools and families!

What’s in a Nourish Your Roots box

Each Nourish Your Roots box contains an assortment of 8-10 fresh Nova Scotian grown items including a variety of root vegetables and maybe some fruit and/or herbs.

Box contents vary across the province and by year, depending on who your school's farm partners are. All of your produce will be grown with care, with recipes available to help you enjoy every bite!
