Sprouts Foundation and DUG Reduce Food Insecurity with Nutritious Gardens in a Box


Sprouts Registered Dietitan Partner Suzanne Farrell talks with KDVR-FOX31 about how local nonprofit Denver Urban Gardens (DUG) is helping residents plant at-home gardens full of nutritious produce.

DUG has developed “To-Grow Boxes” filled with seeds, starter plants, and educational resources that mobilizes the community to grow more of their own food, and the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation has partnered with DUG to give 500 of these boxes to families facing food insecurity – that translates to 106,000 pounds of food that will be grown at Denver-area homes and increase the resilience of local communities while reducing food insecurity.
