We like that this non-profit works a little differently: though inspiring and empowering youth to take action and make a change in their own community. The message is that young people can change the world, and are doing it every day. The values and life skills that Roots & Shoots promotes are what we at Gourmet Food & Wine Tours wish to support and deeply stand behind.
Some highlight programs that bring community together though food are: growing backyard and school gardens in the U.S.; raising awareness of the importance of true extra-virgin olive oil production in Spain; and ending hunger through soup kitchen service.
