<h1>our story</h1> <p><strong>Founded in 2007, sweetgreen is a destination for simple, seasonal, healthy food. We believe the choices we make about what we eat, where it comes from and how it&rsquo;s prepared have a direct and powerful impact on the health of individuals, communities and the environment. That&rsquo;s why we&rsquo;re building a transparent supply network, why we cook from scratch, and why we&rsquo;re building a community of people who support real food.</strong></p> <p><strong>We&rsquo;re in the business of feeding people, and we&rsquo;re out to change what that means.</strong></p>
