About Us

100% scratch-made goodness. Without any of the guilt.

They say it takes a village. We say it takes a kitchen – and a lil’ bit of fun. Based in California’s sunny Santa Monica, Citizen Sprout is all about creating simple, fresh, wholesome, homemade meals and snacks for families and individuals who want to eat well, to feed the body and the soul.

With a focus on healthy, nutritious, oh-so-tasty food that tastes as good as it looks, we’re founded on the idea: Honest, healthy, tasty food shouldn’t be complicated.

All the flavor without any of the nasties; that’s our promise.

Our aim is simple:

We want to bring back the fundamentals of eating well by celebrating whole, fresh, healthful food. Whether stopping by our store is plan A or plan B for your morning bite, your kids’ lunch, or the whole family for dinner, we make sure you never have to sacrifice for the sake of getting a meal with merit.

We look forward to delivering organic, balanced, scratch-made lunches to your school!

Everything is made from scratch in the Citizen Sprout kitchen in Santa Monica and delivered at your school’s designated lunch time in 100% compostable containers. We make all of our own sauces and snacks with simple, whole ingredients so that you can feel good about the food your kid is eating.

All of our school lunches include:

  • Organic ingredients
  • Local produce, whenever possible
  • Grass fed, wild and hormone/antibiotic-free proteins from 
responsible fisheries and ranches
  • Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten-Free Options
  • No processed foods or artificial ingredients
  • No peanuts or tree nuts
