We’ve partnered with 108 organizations across 23 states to help kids in our communities access fresh, healthy food.
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.
Aiming to shift the nutritional landscape and to share knowledge with others, our Impact Grant Partners create programs that transform communities.
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
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.
Our Neighborhood Grants support organizations serving the communities where our team members live, work and play. With a 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 2022, the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation received more than 300 applications for this program, and we awarded $660,000 across 108 grants.

Our Neighborhood Grants support organizations working at the community level, providing nutrition education and healthy food access to kids. With grants ranging in size from $5,000 to $10,000, we support organizations that help children develop healthy eating habits that last a lifetime. From school gardens to youth cooking classes, our partners offer a variety of educational and hands-on programming. Since 2016, the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation has awarded more than $4 million in Neighborhood Grants to 400 nonprofit organizations.
The Neighborhood Grant program is available to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations with a presence in cities and communities where Sprouts Farmers Market operates stores. Applicants must demonstrate strong mission alignment and promote community wellness in order to qualify.
2023 Neighborhood Grant Application Update

With that, the 2023 Neighborhood Grant application cycle is on hold. We do not yet have a launch date to share, but once finalized, all grant information will be announced on our website and social media pages. Thank you for your support and understanding!
