Join the Fight Against Childhood Hunger

Did you know that more than 17 million kids in the US are at risk of hunger? That’s nearly 1 in 4. We’re partnering with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® Campaign to end childhood hunger in America. The No Kid Hungry Campaign supports local youth groups, schools, faith-based institutions, food banks and other community programs in providing meals to children in need. Here are four easy ways you can help:

Donate Online & We’ll Match It

Go to our online holiday meal ordering site and select “SOS Donation” as one of your items. Make a donation and we’ll match it, up to a total of $25,000. (You can donate even if you don’t place a holiday meal order!)

Buy Organic Fuji Apples

For every pound of organic Fuji apples sold at our stores, a donation goes to the campaign. Together, Whole Foods Market, Rainier Fruit Company and Columbia Marketing International will donate two cents for each pound of organic Fuji apples sold from November 14 to December 25, up to a maximum of $30,000.

Order Gift Cards Online

For each Whole Foods Market gift card ordered online from November 16 to December 31, we’ll donate $1.

Use Special Coupons

Arrowhead Mills, Celestial Seasonings and Terra Chips will donate 40 cents per redeemed specially marked coupons featured in The Whole Deal value guide.
