Sam and his wife Kirsten Thompson founded Groceryships in April 2013.

Groceryships' mission is to help low-income families struggling with obesity, diabetes, food addiction and/or malnourishment by awarding Groceryships, a comprehensive program of financial assistance, nutrition & cooking classes, and psychosocial support designed to increase consumption of whole, plant-foods. We leverage the power of social capital to empower families through support and education, and to foster organic change on a community level through mentorship and train-the-trainer models.
