Community giving at Whole Foods Market is rooted in our belief that corporations, as well as individuals, must be good tenants of the planet. We are intimately connected to the health and economy of each community we serve, and feel it is our responsibility to give back to those communities in meaningful ways. We are committed to donating at least five percent of our annual net profits to charitable causes. For us, giving back expands our passion for quality foods into the larger arena of quality of life.
