THE PROBLEM

In 2019, 16.1% of residents in Miami-Dade County live with food insecurity. That's equivalent to about 455,710 people.

OUR SOLUTION

SPROUT provides necessary resources and develops impactful programs to assist residents within communities with a proactive three-phase approach. The approach addresses social determinants of health & reduces disparities in access to healthy foods.
