Sprouts Kids Club is a program modeled after a national program called “Power of Produce.” The mission is to educate and encourage children to take part in the local food system and understand the benefits of eating nutritious foods.
Providing activities to allow kids to engage with local farmers will encourage a better understanding about farmers and where food comes from. By empowering kids to make healthy food choices, we hope to improve future health outcomes of childhood obesity and diabetes while encouraging a new generation of informed, healthy market shoppers.
The Sprouts Kids Club is free to all children ages 5 - 12, with a specific emphasis on children with less access to fresh, local healthy food options.
Sprouts Kids Club – how it works
Free to all KIDS - Ages 5 – 12, upon registering for the program, kids receive
- A reusable Sprouts shopping bag

*“Passport To Health” - Passports are kept at the Information Booth or Sprouts booth. Each week when kids check in they are given a sticker or a stamp for their passport. Special incentives may be given when a child collects a certain number of stickers -(increments of 10)
