Sneak Peek at Whole Grains Month in September
Every September, we celebrate the goodness of whole grains! This year we are asking contest participants to complete fun, daily whole grain challenges throughout September.

To earn chances to win prizes, participants might be asked to: make a whole grain dinner or treat to share with a neighbor or friend, choose a favorite whole grain ingredient to post about on social media, or donate whole grain product to a local food bank or pantry. To get a sense of the types of prizes given away to "Grainies" winners, visit our Whole Grains Month webpage.
