Community Giving

Whole Foods Market’s community giving programs provide a wide range of resources to help address existing and emerging needs in our neighborhoods and industry. We work with individuals and organizations that share our commitment to nourishing people, animals and the planet, and proudly support hundreds of partnerships and initiatives each year.

Local Giving

Each quarter, Whole Foods Market contributes to community-based nonprofit organizations with aligned missions and values. Our community investments are led by local team member networks and are focused on addressing specific needs within each community we serve.

Regional, National and Global Giving

In addition to our local community giving program, Whole Foods Market provides leadership and resources to regional and national initiatives that relate to our mission, core values and industry. Through this program, we support larger-scale current and emerging needs in the U.S., Canada and UK. Priorities include food security, food waste and sustainability.
