Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation

Founded in 2015, the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation aims to inspire, educate, and empower individuals, especially children, to live healthier lives. With a focus on nutrition education and fresh food access, our nonprofit partners teach children both how to grow and prepare fresh foods, as well as why such foods are important to their bodies. Knowing that kids who learn these lessons from a young age are more likely to grow up eating healthier food as adults, we reach children at every stage of development, providing hands-on learning and tasting of fresh fruits and vegetables as they grow. Sprouts Farmers Market covers all of our operational expenses, ensuring that every dollar raised goes directly to programming. 

Announcing the First-Ever Coast-to-Coast Virtual School Gardens Tour!

Save the date message for the first-ever coast-to-coast school virtual school gardening tour

On April 27, bring your students or children on a virtual journey from the Big Island of Hawai’i to Washington, D.C. as we celebrate school gardens across the country! At each stop on this first-ever, Coast-to-Coast Virtual School Garden Tour, we’ll hear from students in unique and diverse communities, learning how they’re engaging in hands-on outdoor education, growing healthy food for themselves and their communities, and becoming caretakers of their local environments.

The 45-minute event begins at 10am PT and will feature activities for you to try in your own school gardens, or at home with your kids! This celebration of school gardens is expected to bring together more than 1,200 elementary schools tuning in live. We hope you can join us!
