reStore is an initiative founded by a group of volunteers in 2008, with the aim of connecting Chennai citizens with organic chemical-free food and with the processes that bring food to our tables. reStore's activities include:
  • RETAIL       reStore's 100% organic food outlet started in mid-2008 is directed by volunteers along with a group of staff members who are passionate about natural foods.
  • URBAN FARMING      A very popular activity of reStore is edible gardening in both private and public spaces.
  • AWARENESS         Volunteers and staff members of reStore participate in many awareness and advocacy efforts, towards ensuring a future where all Indians have access to foods free of poisonous chemicals and genetically modified organisms.
