Roots of Change Fund

Incubating a sustainable food systems non-profit

The ROC Fund is a funder collaborative supporting work to accelerate California’s transition to more sustainable food systems. The ROC Fund, working with an outside advisory board of experts—the Roots of Change (ROC) Council—supports key projects that will help California lead the way to food systems that protect public health, sustain natural resources and biodiversity, provide sustainable livelihoods for farmers and farm laborers, and support thriving regional food economies.
