Good Grains for a Good Cause
Each year, we try to find a fresh and innovative way to celebrate Whole Grains Month. In 2013, we decided to focus on the importance of giving back and sharing whole grains with those in need, with a three-part program called Good Grains for a Good Cause. Here’s how it worked:
We spotlighted the current giveaway efforts of WGC member companies, to create momentum and inspiration for sharing with others. Scroll over any company below, to find out what charities they support.
We invited people across the US to nominate their favorite charity that addresses food insecurity – such as a local food bank, food pantry, or soup kitchen. We received 496 entries nominating 99 charities in 38 states and the District of Columbia. Want to see who was nominated? See our list here.
From the qualifying charities, we randomly picked one organization to receive a great variety of member-donated whole grain foods. And our winner was... Snack in a Backpack, from Fannin County, Georgia.
