“I volunteered with Sprouts this past summer and loved it! I work in the nutrition field and so I really enjoyed seeing kids learn the skills needed to get creative with food and live a healthy life. The kids are exposed to amazing chefs in the community and have so many first-rate experiences. The Sprouts team puts in an incredible amount of effort behind the scenes and also on a day to day basis at the cooking classes/camp.”

“Volunteering with sprouts was an awesome experience. Very smooth volunteer process, I’ve done it several times. Upon arrival, their Operations Director provides an overview of the program and then kids start arriving. The chefs always are excited and we always make such delicious foods and learn so much about cooking and health. It’s always awesome to see a shy or nervous child’s personality emerge while cooking. Sprouts is doing really amazing and necessary work in our community.”
