Community First Grant Cities

In 2016, we launched our first nationwide initiative, the Community First Grant Program, designed to support Whole Foods Market's Team Members (employees) and their community partners who are increasing fresh, healthy food access in neighborhoods with few options. 

We partnered with 32 new communities and invested a total of $168,000 in diverse projects like urban farms, mobile markets and community gardens that are building local food systems and growing community health.
