Roving Radish

Howard County’s Rov­ing Radish pro­motes healthy eat­ing, sup­ports local farms, and pro­vides job train­ing.  A public-private part­ner­ship, Rov­ing Radish buys pro­duce and pro­tein from local farms and uses those ingre­di­ents to cre­ate meal kits.  County staff and vol­un­teers wash and pre­pare items as needed to cre­ate kits that fol­low healthy recipes.  Rov­ing Radish works with farm­ers to use sea­sonal ingre­di­ents and meal kits are avail­able from May to Novem­ber.  Meal kits are avail­able for pur­chase to any­one who works, plays or lives in Howard County and are offered at a dis­counted price to those in need.

Each week’s kit con­tains ingre­di­ents and instruc­tions to cook two dif­fer­ent meals.  Each one is designed to feed a fam­ily of four. New in 2017, there is now a veg­e­tar­ian meal kit option.  Orders are taken on-line and meal kits are picked up at one of sev­eral locations.

To learn more, find the pickup loca­tion clos­est to you, and order, visit RovingRadish.com.  To vol­un­teer (May-November), please visit hocovolunteer.org.

Light soy candles.The oil byproducts in most candles can’t hold a flame to options like soy, since they burn longer and take less of a toll on the planet.
