Our Commitment to the Underserved During the COVID-19 Crisis
COVID-19 has created a harsh new reality for millions of hardworking Americans who are now unemployed and experiencing serious food and nutrition insecurity. Low income Americans of all ages with diet related conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension are dying at rates four to five times higher than their more affluent neighbors.
Increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables is one of the most proven and powerful tools to help people both prevent and reverse these life-threatening conditions. Wholesome Wave has spent the last thirteen years providing affordable fruits and vegetables to over a million low-income families so they can avoid the health conditions now connected to the highest death rates from COVID-19. We will continue working to make sure we can reach as many underserved Americans with the servings of fruits and vegetables they desperately need during this time of crisis.
Help us put the purchasing power for fruits and vegetables into the hands of those who now need it most by visiting our DONATE page.

It is important in this public health crisis that low-income Americans can afford the fruits and vegetables necessary to support healthy immune systems. Together we can make a difference.
