Leaves are all about photosynthesis, creating food molecules and absorbing carbon dioxide for the plant.

Root systems also provide support for plants in the form of an anchor in the soil.

In these plants, roots act like a storage of food. They support the plant and transport food.

So, food is also present in roots of some plants not only in leaves.
