At the end of September, one qualifying charity will be randomly selected to win a wealth of whole grain foods and national recognition. Nominations are accepted on the Whole Grains Council website through Sept. 30.

“Charities throughout the country are doing important work to feed Americans needing support, and during Whole Grains Month, we want to honor these efforts,” said Cynthia Harriman, director of food and nutrition strategies for the Whole Grains Council and Oldways, a nonprofit food and nutrition education organization. “Good Grains for a Good Cause helps consumers recognize good work in their communities, while bringing the importance of eating nutritious and delicious whole grains top of mind.”
