Many people in the world do not have a choice when it comes to having nutritious foods or even basic health services, let alone access to both. That’s why the nonprofit organization Vitamin Angels helps at-risk populations gain access to life-changing vitamins and minerals. And this month, Vitamin Angels is teaming up with Whole Foods Market so that you can help people get access to what they need.
What is Vitamin Angels?
Founded in 1994, Vitamin Angels is a global public health organization working toward ending malnutrition worldwide by distributing life-changing vitamins and minerals to at-risk mothers and children under five years of age in the U.S. and around the world. In 2019, Vitamin Angels provided vitamins and minerals to over 70 million mothers and children in more than 70 countries, including domestically in the U.S. Both Charity Navigator and GuideStar give Vitamin Angels their highest marks for financial transparency.

While these underserved populations are primarily in areas classified by the World Health Organization as experiencing moderate to severe malnutrition, the organization also reaches mothers and children in the U.S. and Canada. Whole Foods Market shoppers have generously supported Vitamin Angels through fundraising efforts for years, and they need your help more now than ever.
