Welcome to Grassroots Grocery
We are a growing, effective cooperative grocery rooted in Alton, Illinois which provides healthy and organically grown food, strengthens the network of local farmers, engages our diverse community in improving health and self-sufficiency, and contributes to a sustainable local economy. Our goal is to establish a resource for healthy food and locally made food products, focused on produce grown within a 50-mile radius, whenever possible. We are involving the community through education, outreach, and networking opportunities that contribute to the restoration of local, sustainable agriculture in the Alton area. Our vision is to help transform our neighborhood, a USDA-designated “food desert” with limited access to transportation, into a home for accessible, affordable, healthy food.
