Supporting schools and inspiring families to improve children’s nutrition & wellness.
The Whole Kids Foundation’s mission is to improve children’s nutrition and wellness with the goal of ending the childhood obesity epidemic. Through partnerships with innovative organizations, schools and educators we work to provide children access to healthier choices. We aim to help children reach their full potential through the strength of a healthy body.
The Whole Kids Foundation is part of the Whole Foods Market charitable family. We work to support schools and inspire families to improve children's nutrition by making healthy food choices for life. Current programs include:
* Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools which grants salad bars to qualifying schools.
* A School Garden Grant program in partnership with Food Corps that will launch this fall.
* Teacher nutrition and cooking education in pilot this summer.
Whole Foods Market received the Culinary Youth Advocate of the Year form the International Association of Culinary Professionals for work providing resources to schools to improve their lunch programs.
