Join us for a cocktail reception at Monnik Beer Company on Sunday, April 8th from 6-8 pm to learn why New Roots needs your help uniting communities to spread food justice. We’re seeking chef volunteers to provide on-site cooking demonstrations for our eleven bi-weekly Fresh Stop Markets, located in fresh food-insecure neighborhoods, during the 22-week season that kicks off in June.

We will be offering complimentary Kentucky Proud beet-infused tequila cocktails, beet beer from Monnik, and farm-fresh bites prepared by Monnik’s executive chef, Meghan Levins. You can learn more about the Fresh Stop Markets and sign up for one or more of the 143 available cooking slots at the cocktail reception. If you are interested in coming to learn more about how you can participate in the local food justice movement, but are not a culinary professional or chef, we welcome you to bring gift cards or cash donations.

Join the food justice movement and help us spread the word by sharing this event with your culinary-minded friends. This is a free event but capacity is limited so please RSVP by calling 502-509-6770, ext. 702, or emailing us at, with your name, affiliation (if any), your email address, and phone number. Check our Facebook event page for updates.

We are looking for silent auction items! Please email or call 502-509-6770 ext. 705.

We can’t wait to see you there!
