The Roving Radish promotes local farms and healthy eating. Each week from spring to fall, the Roving Radish program buys regionally grown food straight from the farm and prepares meal kits that are easy to cook since most of the prep work has been done. The meal kits include the ingredients needed to make two dinners, each feeding four people. The meal kits are available for purchase to all Howard County residents and are offered at a discounted price to those in need.
Orders can be placed now – meal kit pickups will start the week of May 30th. For more details and pickup locations visit RovingRadish.com
Volunteers are needed on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays to help prepare the meal kits. Volunteers wash and prepare vegetables and assemble kits. Volunteering with Roving Radish is best for adults, but minors age 16 and up can participate with a parent’s permission. Younger children are only allowed if accompanied by a volunteering adult.
The Roving Radish meal kit prep is done in Glenwood, MD at the Old Bushy Park school. To sign up, visit the hocovolunteer.org website. The on-line application is short, we promise. You can then sign up directly for a shift.
The Roving Radish is a partnership between Howard County government, the Horizon Foundation, the United Way, and Howard County General Hospital. If you have questions, please email James Zoller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
