So what next?
After working for Sprout full time over the summer, we believe that we have a viable business that can be used to positively impact the lives of thousands of people living in urban food deserts across Ottawa.
We hope to expand to more stores as our business continues to grow, so that we can bring healthy food to more and more individuals living in food deserts. We also hope to continue branching out into social employment and hiring more individuals who would not otherwise be able to find work.
We believe we are doing something really important with Sprout and want to continue to serve the community for years to come.
