Howard County’s Roving Radish program 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 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. In 2017, Roving Radish added 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.
