Whole Foods Market is a company with a conscience.  We believe passionately in supporting the Memphis community and are actively involved by:


Donating goods and services to local organizations
Sponsoring community events
Educating adults and children with interactive tours of the store
Hosting adult and child cooking classes



Our Community Support (5%) Days are one meaningful way we give back to our community. On designated days throughout the year a total of 5% of the day’s net sales are donated to local 501c3 non-profit organizations. Customers help support our selected organizations just by shopping on these 5% Days. Please use this application to apply. 




We are excited to be able to help the Memphis community with a variety of partnership opportunities throughout the year, including:


Event Assistance (single event or a series of events)
Donations (usually product donation for charity purposes)
Project Support (community gardens, mural production, etc)
