Meet Roots Hummus

Get Off the Grid Fest welcomes Roots Hummus!  We thank them for their sponsorship!

In the visionary soup that is Asheville, North Carolina, one man was -and continues to be – guided by a drive to harness the healing power of food. The place where he took his first stand in 2006 in the storage room of the Coop on Haywood Rd., which was an unlikely place in some respects. However, the people surrounding it were interested in food that was pure, delicious, and traceable. They were hungry for it. And so it was in this space, armed with little more than a food processor and enough naiveté to persevere, Matt Parris created a little carryout café, which sourced local meats and veggies, organic grains and dairy, and sauces and spreads that took most items on the menu to an 11. The name of the café was Roots.
