The Whole Grains Council is inviting people to nominate their favorite charities that address food insecurity as part of its ‘Good Grains for a Good Cause’initiative.
One winner (food bank, soup kitchen, or other organization) will receive cases of whole grain foods, said the WGC, which is running the initiative ahead of Whole Grains Month in September.
At the end of September, one qualifying charity will be randomly selected as winner.
Whole Grains Month is an annual initiative designed to introduce consumers to the benefits of whole grains, which contain 100% of the original kernel – all of the bran, germ, and endosperm.
The Whole Grain Stamp is now used on more than 8,600 products in 41 countries.
While products allowed to use the stamp must contain at least 8g whole grains per serving, most products featuring it now contain significantly more, with almost two-thirds now containing at least twice this amount, according to the Whole Grains Council.
