23 million Americans live in “food deserts,” which is the term used to describe areas with little to no access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
To alleviate the harm caused by this lack of natural, nutritious food, Sabra partnered with Renew Richmond — a non-profit organization that uses urban agriculture to battle poverty in local underserved communities — to launch Plants with a Purpose in August 2016.
The largest Food Desert in the country for a city its size.

Plants with a Purpose has also led to the establishment of an organic employee workshare garden on the Sabra campus, home to our Gold LEED-certified hummus manufacturing facility.
