The Food Hub
The Sprout Food Hub manages the aggregation, distribution, and marketing of source-identified food products from over 40 local and regional producers to strengthen their ability to satisfy wholesale, retail, and institutional demand.
Currently, Sprout coordinates Farm-to-School for six Central Minnesota school districts, large-volume wholesale sales for premiere and resort restaurants, and a Community Supported Agriculture program.
Sprout’s licensed kitchen facility is a state-certified shared-use kitchen facility and is now available for rent by community members, community organizations, businesses, food processing entrepreneurs, and institutional users to expand their capacity, market channels or develop value-added products. Learn more about the kitchen here.
Building on 9 years of work on viable community-based food systems, Sprout is part of the backbone of our regional sustainable food system through its efforts to expand market opportunities for producers in Central Minnesota and by helping the community live happier and healthier lives through providing customers with the freshest, tastiest, and most nutritious local products.
