About Whole Foods Market Caring for Communities
As a company, we are set up very uniquely for a large business. Our stores are not cookie cutter big box-type stores with directives from “corporate” about how to run the business. Each of our stores has a lot of latitude in deciding the best way to operate that individual store to meet the needs of the local community. That makes community giving really special and fun. Overall, our community giving well exceeds 5% of our total net profits each year.
