July EcoStamps: Roots for the Home Team

p.4 tony test tasting roots webWe’re excited to partner with Roots for the Home Team this summer to bring you their fresh and healthy salads in our deli and collect donations for this amazing organization. Youth involved in Roots for the Home Team grow their own ingredients for salads, use their inventiveness to help develop recipes, and sell their creations at Target Field during Minnesota Twins’ weekend home games.

Roots for the Home Team creates life-enhancing, influential opportunities for young people, and partners with youth garden programs in ethnically diverse areas of the Twin Cities, such as Urban Roots and Youth Farm.

Mississippi Market is excited to show off the culinary talents of Roots for the Home Team participants by sharing their salads with you. By including their salads alongside our own deli options, we get to highlight this awesome program and help the kids reach a larger audience.

“A partnership like this shows our youth that their skill level in creating recipes is significant enough to interest a well-established store,” says Susan Moore, of Roots for the Home Team. “It also enables them to contribute to, positively affect and be part of a much bigger community.”

Look for these Roots for the Home team salads this summer!

Mela’s Tater Thorne Salad- An awesome potato salad with several garden vegetables including kale, radishes, and carrots. Tossed in a delicious vinaigrette and topped with blue cheese crumbles.

Kickin Quinoa Salad- Full of crisp fresh garden vegetables and a smooth zippy dressing and topped off with sunflower seeds!

Big Bang Seoul Salad- A Korean noodle salad loaded with fresh vegetables, topped with cashews and features Korean Gochujang chili sauce. Very Tasty!

Calliya Pizza Salad- Orzo pasta with fresh basil, garlic and veggies. Tossed in a red wine vinaigrette and Parmesan cheese.
