In August 2017, Stephanie Quon (Arctic 2019 alum) started The Sprouts Initiative, a community organization focused on sustainability and accessibility. The initiative began as a project focused on minimizing waste, where they collected end-of-day food from bakeries and donated them to local shelters. As of August 2020, the initiative has donated over 10,000 meals. Through the past three years, they have also received $31,500 in federal grants to fund community-based accessibility projects.
