The Sprout Mobile Market is a vehicle for change, bringing food out of the aisles and on the road to areas which lack access to healthy, nutritious foods. The organization’s relationships with local growers and producers puts the freshest fare en route to rural communities, meeting them where they are.
Sprout is a non-profit organization based in Little Falls that aims to connect and strengthen the local food system.
