Supporting schools and inspiring families to improve children's nutrition and wellness.
Whole Kids Foundation aims to:
As a catalyst for lasting change, Whole Kids Foundation takes the following approach:
We support communities of educators, parents and students to create lasting change. We work independently and in partnership with other organizations to provide resources that allow schools to serve the most nutritious food possible and to connect children to where food comes from.
We work to educate teachers and parents about the importance of the connection between food and health. Our goal is to inspire teachers and parents to be positive role models for children in making healthy food choices. We reach children with simple lessons about food and how it impacts their well-being.
Founded by Whole Foods Market, we use the company's considerable expertise about quality ingredients, food production methods and nutrition to engage educators, community members and leaders in taking an active role in raising standards for food in schools. We use our voice to inspire children and families to make healthy food choices for life.
