Whole Foods Market Supports Small Producers


CCOF certified retailer Whole Foods Market is in the final countdown for selecting recipients of their Small Producer Grant.

Small Producer Grant winners will get the opportunity to receive donations as part of Whole Foods Market's "5% Day" on June 10 when 5% of that day's net sales are donated. The national retailer expects to award about $5,000 to 40 local makers through this program. Recipients can use the money to buy ingredients, put a down payment on a delivery vehicle, or develop in any other way they see fit.

CCOF is thrilled to see some of our certified organic members among the 60 finalists for 2015, and you can help with your vote! You can vote by visiting the local store (if you are local) or through the metro Facebook pages listed below. Vote between now and May 26 to support small organic producers!
