Local Community Giving

Once per quarter, Whole Foods Market contributes to community-based non-profit organizations with aligned missions and values. Our charitable investments are led by local team member networks and are focused on addressing specific needs within their community.

Bag Credit

In many markets, customers who shop with their reusable bags have the option of receiving a 5 or 10 cent credit (amount varies by location) per bag or donating that credit to a selected non-profit organization. Recipient organizations are typically designated on a quarterly basis and help promote the Bag Credit Program within the local community.
