Our Neighborhood Grants support organizations working at the community level, providing nutrition education and healthy food access to kids. With grants ranging in size from $5,000 to $10,000, we support organizations that help children develop healthy eating habits that last a lifetime. From school gardens to youth cooking classes, our partners offer a variety of educational and hands-on programming. Since 2016, the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation has awarded more than $4 million in Neighborhood Grants to 400 nonprofit organizations.
The Neighborhood Grant program is available to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations with a presence in cities and communities where Sprouts Farmers Market operates stores. Applicants must demonstrate strong mission alignment and promote community wellness in order to qualify.
2023 Neighborhood Grant Application Update
Thank you for your interest in our Neighborhood Grant. Historically, this grant application has opened in April and awarded funds in October. We are in the process of realigning our grants to better support our commitment to advancing children’s nutrition education outcomes. In addition, we are also launching a new grant management tool to make the process more user friendly for applicants. With that, the next Neighborhood Grant application cycle is temporarily on hold. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time!
Please check back on this webpage, on June 1, 2023, for more details about our Neighborhood Grant program.

Healthy Communities Grant
The Healthy Communities Grant is designed to help nonprofit partners scale programs and serve a greater number of individuals. Grants range in size from $50,000 to $100,000, spread over two years. By offering multi-year funding, organizations can build capacity and expand their reach within the communities they serve. Organizations must first complete a full Neighborhood Grant cycle before they may be invited to apply for a Healthy Communities Grant.

Our Impact Grant Partners provide experiential learning to youth, with garden-based programs that span across cities and states. They use established curricula, implementing STEM education alongside hands-on learning. Impact Partners are experts in their field, and they contribute to advancing the school gardening movement by providing research alongside large-scale programming. Grants of varying amounts are awarded for three-year terms and are dependent on the organization’s needs.
