Root Causes is a student-run, Duke Medical School affiliated organization that combats food insecurity in the greater Durham area. Understanding the close link between access to nutritious foods and many chronic health conditions, we work with health professionals to provide food-insecure patients with fresh produce. Every Saturday, we rely on volunteers to pack produce bags and make deliveries to patients referred to our program. We collaborate with local organizations, farmers, and community members to improve food access for all members of our community.
