We're kicking off spring with the Oakland Roots!

We’re proud to announce that Mandela Partners is now the Official Local Produce Partner of the Oakland Roots and Soul Sports Club.

Each week, we’ll bring locally grown produce to the players, helping them stay fueled throughout the season.

"This is the true essence of our Purpose coming through in our brand partnerships,” said Oakland Roots and Soul SC VP, Brand Partnerships, Andrea Lepore. “Mandela Partners works directly with a group of small, BIPOC-owned farmers, literally rooted in Oakland and the greater Bay Area region. We are honored to have their support with fresh, local produce to nourish our players.”

"Oakland Roots is a purpose-driven men’s soccer team that seeks to harness the magic of Oakland and the power of sports as a social force for good; Oakland Soul women’s soccer team serves as an elite pathway to pro soccer, providing a high-quality training environment while empowering players."

“This is an exciting partnership for us,” said Mandela Partners’ Executive Director Monique Brown. “Not only will our collaboration introduce more of our Oakland community to Mandela Partners’ deeply impactful work, each piece of fruit provided to the players translates to direct economic benefit to our farmers, who work so hard to keep us all fed.”

We’re proud to work with other groups deeply rooted in Oakland – stay tuned for more on this exciting partnership!
