“I can’t think of a better investment in job training for at-risk youth. There is a huge demand for trained culinary workers.  The demand is long-lasting because the public wants more restaurants and these jobs cannot be outsourced or done by robots.  Everyone trained by Root will have several job offers. Win-Win-Win.”
