Spout UNC is a committee of Nourish-UNC. Nourish-UNC is a movement of students engaging with communities in mutually beneficial partnerships in pursuit of a socially and economically just world. Nourish operates out of a social entrepreneurship model, partnering with local organizations to run small-scale business ventures like Hunger Lunch, Sprout , and Global Music Jam, the profits of which are used to implement sustainable, grassroots development projects with community-based partners in other regions. Though it was started at UNC in 2003, Nourish International has since expanded to 45 different campuses.
