Get Ready for Whole Grains Month in September!

We hope you're enjoying all that summer has to offer, whether that's tasting all the wonderful fresh produce of the season, or finding a little time off to relax. We also know that September will be here before we know it. As we work to put together this year's blockbuster Whole Grains Month event, we'd love to share our plans with you so that you can take full advantage of this opportunity for participation and visibility.

In September, we're inviting our members to donate cases of whole grain product to a winning food bank or other food-related charity chosen at the end of the month by our Whole Grains Month contest winners. We'll be spotlighting the charitable efforts of our WGC member companies while we work to promote whole grain consumption nationwide. 

If you'd like to get your company involved (and receive extra publicity and social media attention as we promote the event all month long) email Caroline@OldwaysPT.org with the following information:

  • How many cases of product you’d like to donate (in past years members have contributed anywhere between 1-60 cases of product, with the average being about 4-5 cases)
  • What type of product you’d like to donate (e.g. two cases of oat & honey granola and three cases of whole grain crackers)
  • The names of your company’s social media accounts so that we can tag you and give your donation lots of visibility
  • Optionally, send us a photo of the product you’re donating so we may be able to include it in marketing materials or a blogpost highlighting the event
