About the event
Are you a Just business looking for a Just Cause? We have a great sponsorship opportunity for you.
On May 17th, 4:30-7:00 PM, at Redeemer Lutheran Church, the Shawnee Fresh Stop Market and New Roots will host our seventh annual, berry popular and well-loved Strawberry Jamm Festival. This free community event has become a New Roots institution with booths filled with free strawberry-themed treats, games, crafts, and entertainment, and serves as the unofficial kickoff for this season’s Fresh Stop Markets.
This will be a fun, festive and well-attended event, in which our sponsors -- this could be you! -- will have their names featured prominently in our promotional materials. (See below for details.)
We rely on sponsors to invest in these important New Roots food justice events. Your support is vital to this mission and greatly appreciated. All funds raised go toward creating opportunities for families living on limited resources to access affordable, fresh, local, organic, healthy food.
