What a fantastic program - I love how much Whole Foods genuinely cares about both the local community and international humanitarian efforts.

Congratulations to you on an extremely worthy mission. Let's hope some excellent early nutrition leads to long and healthy lives for these children. The healthier we all are, the less burden on our society.

Whole Foods is a good influence for others, because of their efforts with Vitamin Angels and other organizations. Because of Vitamin Angels, many, many children will have a better quality of life, not to mention that SO very many children will live. I wish other stores did this. I personally love Whole Foods because of their ethics. Then, when our economy went bad & I was in real estate, I went broke & Whole Foods donated food to the Mandarin Food Bank. Thanks to them, I was able to have milk and veggies. When I get back on my feet, financially, I intend to support more of Whole Foods' efforts and will go back to shopping in their store. I do shop there now, but only for things on special sale & their products last longer because they are supplied by local suppliers (& not in mass production like in other stores). Whole Foods fruits are sweeter, like as if I can probably taste the difference from a well grown fruit, vs. the mass production & chemicalized fruits. Whole Foods is great in so many ways and now I see they support the Vitamin Angels...that makes them even better!

This is a brilliant project: I'm just sorry it's private entrepreneurship and not a structurally available public good (like orange juice during and after WWII!).

The work this organization is doing sounds incredible. So glad to have learned about it. Nutrition is definitely something Americans take for granted. Thanks for sharing this with us.
