Watch the First Video of “Let’s Get Cooking” + This is Your Last Chance to Order This Week’s Meal Kit!

Urban Roots is excited to share the first video in the second installment of the “Let’s Get Cooking” video series and virtual fundraiser! Watch the video above, featuring Chef Tiffany Derry of Roots Chicken Shak and a delicious Seasonal Caesar Salad with Duck Fat Breadcrumbs (you can also view the video on Instagram TV). This series wouldn’t be possible without our amazing sponsors: Vital Farms, H-E-B, and Thundercloud Subs. 

Don’t miss your chance to order the first meal kit of “Let’s Get Cooking” this week (final sales close on the evening of 11/11 and your order will be delivered on 11/12)! Plus, as an added bonus, if you purchase a box for week 1, you’ll get $10 off an Urban Roots Share in December! Your purchase helps Urban Roots bring some of Austin’s most amazing youth together on the farm (socially distanced!) to grow veggies and their leadership skills while they affect real change in our shared communities.

Next week’s box and video will feature Chef Alma Alcocer of El Alma, and the following week will feature Chef Todd Duplechan and Jessica Maher of Lenoir and Vixen’s Wedding. These orders can be picked up at the farm or—NEW THIS SEASON!—delivered for FREE right to your home, courtesy of our Official Delivery Partner: Milk Run.
