For the past 23 years, Rebuilding Together has partnered with the NFL to host community revitalization projects in Super Bowl cities across the country.

These NFL-sanctioned events provide critical home repairs for people in need and their communities. This year, Rebuilding Together Twin Cities will host a community revitalization project to rehabilitate six homes and develop a community garden in the Bryant neighborhood of South Minneapolis. The community garden will give neighbors access to fresh produce, which is extremely limited in the area, and offer residents opportunities to connect with their neighborhood. The Sankofa Garden will also work to establish a community kitchen, giving all neighbors a space to learn about fresh food preparation techniques and nutrition information.

Over two days, hundreds of volunteers will help residents in need, providing critical home repairs that address health and safety concerns. As the result of this partnership, the Bryant neighborhood of South Minneapolis will be a stronger and more vibrant community.
