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. We hope you’ll join the party this September!

Whole Grain Deal of the Day

Throughout September, we’ll feature new whole grain “Deal of the Day” offerings from our WGC member companies. Each day we’ll reveal a new discount, coupon, or social media contest featuring deliciously whole grain goodies, and we’ll give you details about how to participate and take advantage of the deal. Follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram) and use the #WholeGrainsMonth hashtag to connect with us. Tell us how you’re planning to celebrate the whole grains on your plate and if you’re using product with the Stamp, share your photos and tag them with #showustheStamp

Stay tuned for more information about how you can get involved as September approaches!
