Whole Grains Month banner 2018


Here at the Whole Grains Council, we adore whole grains all year round, and September’s month-long celebration of whole grains is the just the excuse we need to dial things up and have some fun. During Whole Grains Month there’s nothing we love more than watching folks fall head-over-heels for the unrivaled taste and overall goodness of whole grains. Thanks for making our 2018 celebration such a success!

How We Celebrated: Whole Grain Deal of the Day

Throughout September, we featured new whole grain “Deal of the Day” offerings from WGC member companies who volunteered to partner with us for Whole Grains Month. Each day we revealed a new discount, coupon, or social media contest featuring deliciously whole grain goodies, and we posted details about how to participate and take advantage of the deal. We connected with many of you through social media (Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram) using the #WholeGrainsMonth hashtag.

Thank you for Celebrating Whole Grains Month with us!

How we celebrated: We hosted a #SPOTWHOLEGRAINS contest on Instagram for a chance to win $500

To celebrate Whole Grains Month, we hosted an Instagram contest all month long! Consumers spotted whole grains at ballparks, local restaurants, BBQs, airports, and in their own kitchens. They followed us @Oldways_pt on Instagram and used the hashtag #SpotWholeGrains when they posted photos the whole grains they were enjoying. One of our participants won a $500 gift card and another recieved a free copy of our Whole Grains Around the World menu plan book. Complete contest rules were outlined on our site.
