Communities We Serve
Whole Cities believes that home-grown solutions are the best way to improve fresh food access.
Our grants support resident-led food access projects such as community gardens, urban farms, and mobile markets that are transforming the food landscape in the following communities:
The Community First Grant Program is an initiative designed to support Whole Foods Market (WFM) Team Members (TM) in the U.S. and Canada who are engaged with community partners increasing access to fresh, healthy food and nutrition education in neighborhoods with few options.
Chicago residents lead the way to community health. Each summer since 2016, Englewood nonprofits with food access projects have applied for a grant of up to $8,000. In an innovative community voting process, the people of Englewood determine which groups are awarded.
Health visionaries collaborate in the Crescent City. Whole Cities supports the ReFresh Community Health Outreach program and Backyard Gardeners Network.
