Meet Our 2021 Neighborhood Grant Partners

We’ve partnered with 105 organizations across 23 states to help kids in our communities access fresh, healthy food.


Impact Grant Partners

Impact Grant

Our Impact Grant Partners provide experiential learning to youth, with garden-based programs that span across cities and states. They use established curricula, implementing STEM education alongside hands-on learning. Impact Partners are experts in their field, and they contribute to advancing the school gardening movement by providing research alongside large-scale programming. Grants of varying amounts are awarded for three-year terms and are dependent on the organization’s needs. 


Meet Our Impact Grant Partners

Aiming to shift the nutritional landscape and to share knowledge with others, our Impact Grant Partners create programs that transform communities.


Meet Our Healthy Communities Grant Partners

With a focus on nutrition education and food access, our Healthy Communities Grant partners help children through in-school and after-school programs.

 


Healthy Communities Grant

Healthy Communities Grant

The Healthy Communities Grant is designed to help nonprofit partners scale programs and serve a greater number of individuals. Grants range in size from $50,000 to $100,000, spread over two years. By offering multi-year funding, organizations can build capacity and expand their reach within the communities they serve. Organizations must first complete a full Neighborhood Grant cycle before they may be invited to apply for a Healthy Communities Grant.


2021 Neighborhood Grant Recipients

Our Neighborhood Grants support organizations serving the communities where our team members live, work and play. With a strong desire from team members to give back and a network of nonprofit partners looking to engage with their local stores, everyone benefits as the community thrives. In 2021, the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation received more than 235 applications for this program, and we awarded $708,000 among 105 grants.
