In the fall of 2018, team members from Amplify Snack Brands participated in a school garden build with Sprouts Farmers Market in Austin, Texas. Over the course of one morning, volunteers built new garden beds, painted benches, and created a shade structure for kids to enjoy while in the garden. Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation partner, TX Sprouts, operates a gardening program at the school, teaching kids how to grow, harvest, and prepare fresh produce.
