Whole Grains Rock gif

Every September, we celebrate the goodness of whole grains! The annual Whole Grains Month campaign brings whole grain recipes, health information, cooking tips, and much more to people around the world.

Whole Grains Month is a great time for everyone to get on the whole grains bandwagon. Eating better is not an all-or-nothing choice. Every little improvement you make in your food helps—all year long.

A pEEK At Our 2021 Celebration

We asked contest participants to complete fun, daily whole grain challenges throughout September. To earn chances to win prizes, participants were asked to:

  • Make a whole grain dinner or treat to share with a neighbor or friend
  • Celebrate Taco Tuesday using whole grain tortillas
  • Choose a favorite whole grain ingredient to post about on social media
  • Donate whole grain product to a local food bank or pantry
  • And much more!

To get a sense of the types of prizes given away to Grainies winners, check out our blog post from the 2021 event
