As part of Sprouts’ commitment towards “zero waste,” the new Sprouts in Prescott, along with all other stores in the area, will donate unsold and edible groceries to St. Mary’s Food Bank through the grocer’s Food Rescue Program. In 2016, Sprouts stores and distribution centers donated approximately 18 million pounds of product through the Food Rescue Program, which is equivalent to 15 million meals. Food that is not fit for donation is provided to local cattle farms and composting facilities. Sprouts’ evolving “zero waste” initiatives help close the loop on food waste while reducing the impact of hunger and the company’s environmental footprint.
