The Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation was founded in 2015 to drive lasting change in the health of our communities. We focus on empowering individuals, especially children, to live healthier lives by supporting programs which teach nutrition education and increase access to fresh, nutritious food. Our nonprofit partners work across all 19 states where Sprouts operates stores, teaching kids how to grow fresh fruits and vegetables in school and community gardens, and how to prepare them as part of a healthy, balanced diet.

Sprouts Farmers Market covers all operational expenses of the Foundation, ensuring that every dollar raised goes directly to programming.

Neighborhood Grants

Since 2016, the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation has operated the Neighborhood Grants program, offering grants up to $10,000 to local organizations to increase kids’ access to fresh, healthy food and nutrition education. To date, nearly 200 organizations have been awarded Neighborhood Grants, totaling $1.3 million.
