Salad Bar Project

Whole Foods Great American Salad Bar Project will provide salad bars to schools.

Whole Foods Markets is partnering with Chef Ann Cooper to bring healthy salad bars to schools throughout the US. The Great American Salad Bar Project is raising money through donations to provide a salad bar to at least one school in each community where there is a Whole Foods store, which makes for nearly 300 communities. Schools can apply for a salad bar grant and donations can be made to the project at the Great American Salad Bar Project website. So far, more than $900,000 has been raised toward a goal of $1,250,000.
