Just BARE® contributes to causes that build stronger communities, and invites you to feed your passions for a healthier future by raising goodness. We support initiatives focused on hunger relief, community enrichment and environmental protection, just to name a few. Be inspired, like we are, by individuals and organizations selflessly championing community causes with passion and perseverance. In 2017, Just BARE continued its commitment to raising goodness by teaming up with two local garden programs: Urban Roots and Roots for the Home Team.
Just BARE is excited to continue its partnership with Urban Roots in 2017. Urban Roots is a “earn as you learn” program striving to nurture youth and, in turn, strengthen the health and future of local Twin Cities’ communities. In-kind donations of Just BARE boneless skinless chicken breasts and thighs will be prepared and served by Urban Roots youth interns at two lunch events this summer. The lunch program connects 60+ youth interns to local chefs who offer professional development and culinary training to Urban Roots “Cook Fresh” youth interns once a week during the summer program.
Roots for the Home Team
As a sponsor since the program’s inception in 2012, Just BARE provides financial support to Roots for the Home Team, a groundbreaking program that partners with youth garden programs in ethnically diverse areas of the Twin Cities. Youth from Minneapolis and St. Paul roll up their sleeves and learn how to plant and nurture gardens. Using the youth members' produce as ingredients, and their inventive nature to help develop recipes, Roots for the Home Team’s youth sell delicious salads at Target Field on Minnesota Twins’ weekend home games.
Roots helps youth boldly believe in their futures, gain valuable entrepreneurial skills, pride and greater sense of self through this first-of-its-kind salad enterprise.
Through Roots, youth experience a new sense of achievement, a new understanding of what opportunities are available to them and the belief that they can create an extraordinary future.
The program’s vision aligns perfectly with our company's dedication to healthy food, families and farms. We congratulate their efforts on raising goodness. Learn more about the
