Welcome to Roots for the Home Team®
Seeding youth success
Roots for the Home Team helps youth boldly believe in their futures, gain valuable skills, pride and greater sense of confidence through a first-of-its-kind salad enterprise.
We partner with youth garden programs in ethnically diverse areas of the Twin Cities. Using their produce grown as ingredients, and their inventive nature to help develop the recipes, together we sell delicious salads at Target Field on Minnesota Twins’ weekend home games.
Through Roots, youth experience a new sense of achievement, a new view and belief that they can create a great life.
