Sprout MN is a non-profit (501c3) food hub that works to support the local food system in a variety of ways. Primarily, Sprout aggregates and distributes local produce from very small family farms to help create markets that move local food to local people.
Growers, eaters, creatives, and economic developers together established Sprout in 2012. With a mission to connect and strengthen the local food system as a regional asset, this community continues to grow and contribute to our collective story of a vibrant and resilient Central Minnesota.
We believe that food, art, and culture are core and integrated in the promotion of health, sustainability, and vitality. Sprout works to connect these elements in ways that increase healthy food access, encourage entrepreneurship, and cultivate creativity.
