Wholesome Wave just earned the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information housing a profile for every tax-exempt nonprofit registered with the IRS.

To reach the Platinum level, Wholesome Wave added extensive information to our Nonprofit Profile: basic contact and organizational information; in-depth financial information; qualitative information about our goals, strategies, and capabilities; and quantitative information about results and progress toward our mission to make produce more affordable.

Showcasing the progress and results we’re making toward our mission, this accreditation demonstrates Wholesome Wave's commitment to the highest standards of transparency and gives donors and funders an alternative to simplistic financial ratios for evaluating our impact.

We are proud to share our key metrics and highlight the work we’re doing to change the world through food. Here our a few of our key accomplishments from last year:

  • We worked with more than 1,400 farmers markets, farm stands, mobile market stops, grocery stores, and healthcare partners to make healthy food more affordable for low-income consumers;
  • Over 550,000 – that’s more than half a million people – could afford produce through Wholesome Wave’s SNAP Matching and FVRx programs;
  • Wholesome Wave triggered over $10.5 Million spent on healthy food.

Thank you to all of our partners and supporters who make this work possible. 


Sadly, millions of Americans can’t afford the fruits and vegetables healthy bodies crave. Right now, the USDA is doubling gifts to Wholesome Wave so we can double consumer buying power for fruits and vegetables.
