About Us

SPROUTS’ STORY

In 2006 Sprouts launched in the Bay Area with the mission to empower youth to lead healthier lives by teaching them how to cook alongside real chefs at local restaurants.
After teaming up with Jamie Oliver in 2012, Sprouts created a Chef Training Program to help youth experiencing hardship achieve stability and financial autonomy through life success training and restaurant internships.
In 2021, we retired our cooking classes for kids to focus exclusively on Sprouts Chef Training.
