Celebrating 5 Years of Creating Healthy Communities
It’s been five exciting years for the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation, working to bring healthy food access and nutrition education programs to youth. In that time, we have awarded more than $10 million to nonprofit partners across 23 states. Together, these organizations have impacted thousands of young lives, teaching kids the importance of eating well and providing fresh, healthy food, close to home.
We’ve grown over the years, adding new partners and programs along the way. With three grant options now available – the Neighborhood Grant, Healthy Communities Grant and Impact Grant – we are working with organizations of all sizes, from those at the grassroots level to others overseeing garden operations across entire cities. Through the partners we support, more than 100,000 children received nutrition education and fresh food access in 2019 alone, and we look to increase that number in the years ahead.
As we work to alter the nutritional landscape, we remain focused on providing children with the knowledge, tools, confidence and desire they need to make healthier food choices. Together, we can continue improving the way our kids eat and build healthy habits that will last a lifetime!
