LuLus Local Food is a Virginia Limited Liability Corporation
originally started to connect family owned and operated farms
serving the Richmond area with local customers in search of fresh
food year round.
Local Roots Food Co-op is Goochland, Powhatan and Eastern Hanover's hub of LuLus Local Food. The Center for Rural Culture is the 501(c)(3) non-profit parent organization of Local Roots Food Co-op.
Local Roots Food Co-op has been designed to serve as a solution for a local food system. The growth of this program will allow for fundamental change to take place in how we source food in our local communities. For this to work there is an intricate balance to be defined between supply and demand. Local Roots Food Co-op provides an innovative tool for a community to connect sustainable food sources from local producers and growers with members of the community seeking local food year round.
