This week kicks off our all-new, three-part video series titled “Let’s Get Cooking with Urban Roots,” sponsored by Whole Foods Market, The City of Austin Office of Sustainability, and Farmhouse Delivery! For three weeks, Urban Roots is offering a box packed full of produce from the East Austin Farm, specialty selections from local Austin businesses, plus a featured recipe from three local chefs. We partnered with our friends at Lick Honest Ice Creams for our first box, which will be featuring a gift card for a pint of ice cream from one of their local shops! We met with Anthony Sobotik and Chad Palmatier to chat about this partnership and hear an update from one of our favorite ice cream shops. Watch the video to learn more. The first video in the series is set to be released on Wednesday, June 17th.
The series will be available on Instagram TV and Urban Roots’ website. Each video will include a cooking tutorial, a message from Urban Roots Executive Director Max Elliott and our youth leaders, plus more exclusive content. As an added bonus, those who make an additional donation at checkout by July 3rd will be entered to win products from Made In Cookware! The boxes will be available in limited quantities and are on sale now, exclusively through Urban Roots. Learn more below, and click here to reserve your box!

The video series will serve as a fundraiser for the organization, creating an opportunity for Urban Roots to fulfill its two-part mission: to use food and farming to transform the lives of young people and inspire, engage, and nourish the community.
