Our Vision
Affordable, healthy, local food for all.

Our Mission
Wholesome Wave empowers under-served consumers to make healthier food choices by increasing affordable access to fresh, local, and regional food.

Our Belief
Poverty should never be an obstacle to eating fruits and vegetables.

What We See

43M Americans rely on SNAP. An additional 21.7M are food insecure. Unfortunately, the cheapest food choices are also the unhealthiest. No wonder the nation spends $500B on diet-related illnesses each year. But when produce is made affordable, people buy it. Diets change overnight and enormous positive outcomes follow for public health, local economies and the environment.

Snap a selfie, feed a family!

Today is the last day that Naked Juice will donate 10 pounds of produce for every selfie tagged with #DrinkGoodDoGood. Which brings a whole new meaning to the word "sharing." Get the scoop!

What We Do

Wholesome Wave unlocks affordability by:

  • Increasing the value of food stamps and other nutrition benefits when spent on fruits and vegetables.
  • Working with healthcare providers to write prescriptions for fruits & vegetables.
  • Leading a national network of researchers, community-based nonprofits, and program operators to share best practices to change the world through food.
  • Activating demand for fresh produce to create market opportunities and improve the bottom lines for farmers and grocery stores nationwide.

Our Impact

  • We’re growing our network of 700+ farmers markets and retailers in 44 states and counting.
  • We address America’s dietary crisis by making fruits and vegetables affordable in under-served communities.
  • We played a key role in triggering the first national, federally funder nutrition incentive program in history (FINI), resulting in $100 Million in the 2014 Farm Bill for nutrition incentives nationally.
  • In scaling innovative programs, we inspire like-minded organizations to join the fight against food insecurity.
  • Over 150,000 low-income Americans are now eating healthier because of our programs…and we’re working hard to push that number to a million by next year!
