sweetgreen in schools

sweetgreen in schools is our homegrown program that educates kids about healthy eating, fitness and sustainability through fun, hands-on activities. What began in 2010 as a one-week curriculum in Washington, D.C. has since grown into a series of wellness workshops involving more than 1,000 students across DC, MD, VA and NYC each year.

Once you unlock green status with the sweetgreen app, 1% of each app purchase is donated to our sweetgreen in schools program and partners to provide nutrition education and access to healthy food for kids. Thank you for paying it forward and helping us make an impact!
