Join us at the Food Roots Community Garden on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 16th.
Every year citizens volunteer their time at various non-profits, charitable organizations, and faith-based organizations to commemorate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. A legacy that stands for the betterment of all Americans. To honor this, Food Roots provides opportunities for our community to get involved with their local food system. Many citizens of Tillamook County face food insecurity; where they are unable to get regular meals, let alone healthier food items. To help, Food Roots has dedicated a community space for growing vegetables, fruits, and herbs with garden plots available for individuals, and a community plot for cultivating produce to donate to our local food banks.
We’ll meet from 12 to 4pm at the Food Roots Community Garden. Our goals for the day will be to take care of general upkeep and to lay bark chip around the garden, making it easier for maintenance and ready for spring community events. With your help we can build capacity for a thriving space to help those in need and bring community together.

The 9th Annual Pie Day is coming! Once again, this fun and fantastic event will be taking place at the White Clover Grange in Nehalem (36585 Highway 53) and will be a joint fundraiser for Food Roots and the White Clover Grange.
For just $10 at the door ($5 for kids under 12) you will gain entry to an exciting pie auction with our returning auctioneer, the amazing Susan Tone, which will then be followed by an all-you-can-eat pie and ice cream feast!
How many pies will be at this event? We’re having trouble coming up with a number that doesn’t sound unreasonable. It’s going to be a lot. Fruit pies, custard pies, savory pies, vegan pies, gluten-free pies, maybe something that’s kind of like a pie but not really, like a tart! Who knows? We get a little crazy in the depths of January.
It all takes place just five days before National Pie Day: Saturday, January 28th, from 2:30 to 4:30pm at the White Clover Grange. There’s nothing better to get you through a winter’s afternoon than bidding on a delicious, locally made pie and then celebrating by eating as much pie and ice cream as you can handle, all while supporting two great organizations. Come join us!
