Roots of Change is a California-based think tank which aims to create a sustainable and healthy food system for the state's residents and urban businesses.

Mission and Purpose

According to the organization's Website:

"Roots of Change delivers roadmaps to victory for a healthy, equitable and resilient food system for the people, businesses and planet it nourishes. We build social, political, and economic capital to catalyze a food movement that will change the models, markets, and policies of the food system. Over the next two to three years, Roots of Change will focus on strengthening the California Food Policy Council, food systems research, and legislative and administrative advocacy in California and at the federal level."
