Sprout partners with local, sustainable farms to provide fresh, seasonal produce available for pick-up on campus. This venture supports our local economy and food system while making healthy food more accessible to students and faculty.
A Spring 2014 membership with Sprout will last six weeks. Your produce will be available for pick up at the Campus Y on Thursdays (see delivery days below). Each week you can trade in your empty bag for that week’s produce. See here for sample Single and Super Bundles. All produce varies with season, creating variety between Spring and Fall semesters. Deliveries this season will be on February 27th, March 20th, March 27th, April 3rd, April 10th, and April 24th.
A six-week Single Bundle with Sprout costs $70 – that’s only $11 per week! A Super Bundle, perfect for larger groups or families, is $180. This includes all of your produce, two reusable bags, and the convenience of on-campus pick-up. If the pick-up location changes due to rain, general inclement weather, or any other event, you will find out through twitter and email.
Where Does the Money Go?
All of the proceeds from Sprout go directly to fund Nourish UNC’s sustainable development projects with community-based partner organizations. This summer Nourish UNC will be funding a music education program in Kenya, a community garden in Rwanda, and an evaluation of clean water solutions in Guatemala. Learn more!
