Supporting the Roulant
The annual gala is Santropol Roulant’s biggest fundraising event, inviting you to learn more about what we do, meet the many people who build the community and contribute what you can to support our work. This year we hope to raise $35,000 to support our most urgent needs.

The Roulant’s vision is to build a thriving intergenerational community with access to healthy, affordable food, opportunities for social inclusion, and spaces for innovation. Whether this happens through delivering warm meals, preserving sour cherries, growing fresh veggies, or repairing bicycles, these incredible initiatives reinforce our vision every single day. Your support helps us reinforce social inclusion through food.
