Sprout announces it has signed an agreement as of June 8, 2022, to partner with Active 20-30 Las Cumbres, Rep. of Panama, on their Rice, Beans, and Greens initiative. Through this partnership, Sprout AI will be growing a combination of crops that will provide the produce for the "greens" portion of this vital program that currently feeds over 10,000 vulnerable Panamanians each year. Each Sprout AI Habitat can hold up to 400 plants. Based on a 30-day growth cycle, the average output would be 5,000 lbs per habitat per year. Assuming 0.5 lbs of "green" per serving, each habitat would be able to provide approximately 10,000 servings per year, thus providing 14 people 2 servings per day for an entire year.
Active 20-30 Las Cumbres, Rep. of Panama was founded in 1989, and the mission of the association has remained unchanged; to provide young adults with an opportunity for personal growth, friendships, and leadership development while improving the quality of life for the special needs of children in their community.
Federico Cotter Taylor, President of Active 20-30 Las Cumbres, Rep. of Panama, notes, "For us, Active 2030 is a way of living because young adults can truly work with the community. We make a huge difference in places you never heard about. Our yellow-vested members have committed themselves to the people, the cause, and their country. Our motto is "One never stands so tall as when kneeling to help a child." In Panama North alone, 33% of the population is low-income children, so 66,000 children are in need of food. Our goal is to provide food for 25,000 people this year, and Sprout AI is going to play an important role in helping us."
