At Roots Catering of Chico we strive to use healthy alternatives to traditional sides.  All of our rice dishes are made with brown, wild rice or other non-processed rice.  We use Masa Family Organic Brown Rice or Lundberg Farm Rices.  We strive to use only organically grown grains & legumes.  We shop the local farmers market and surrounding farms for fresh, seasonal produce.
