Cambridge, MA-based Local Root is hosting its annual February Fundraiser in conjunction with neighboring Didriks, a tableware and outdoor furniture store.
According to the Local Root Facebook page, the stores will donate 5% of all their in-store and online sales to benefit Food For Free, a Cambridge-based nonprofit rescuing and distributing healthy food to those in need.
The stores have been hosting this fundraiser for nine years. A kickoff party is scheduled for February 2 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Didriks.
Opened in 2012, Local Root carries kitchenware, bakeware and cooking essentials, and offers knife sharpening services. The store has also been named a Best of Boston 2013 and 2014.
