Passion, Purpose, PRIDE

May 28 · 2 min read

At sweetgreen, we believe in celebrating the uniqueness of each and every person, encouraging all of our team members to be the best version of themselves and living the sweetlife.

During the month of June, LGBTQ+ PRIDE events across the nation and around the world will highlight the importance of being an inclusive society. In that spirit, we want to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ homeless youth, who represent 40% of all youth experiencing homelessness in our country.

Covenant House is the largest provider of services for homeless youth: 25% of those in their care identify as LGBTQ+. Covenant House’s approach creates a safe and affirming space for LGBTQ+ youth to pursue their passion and purpose.

For this reason, we are proud to announce that on Sunday June 2, we will be donating $1 from each bowl purchased to support programming for LGBTQ+ youth at Covenant Houses nationwide, up to $25,000.

In addition, we have designed PRIDE t-shirts for every member of the sweetgreen team. A limited number will be available for purchase, with 100% of proceeds donated to Covenant House.

Our mission is to inspire healthier communities, and communities are healthier and stronger when all individuals are accepted, welcomed, and supported.

Thank you and Happy PRIDE!
