Whole Planet Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization established by Whole Foods Market.
Born out of Whole Foods Market's desire to give something back to those who have helped us succeed while focusing on the persistent problem of world poverty and hunger, our mission is poverty alleviation through microcredit in communities worldwide that supply Whole Foods Market stores with products.
The foundation was formed with the entrepreneurial spirit of Whole Foods Market in partnership with Professor Muhaammad Yunus and Grameen Bank, co-recipients of 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.
