"Times are tough but no family should go without a wholesome meal during the holidays. Whole Foods Market thinks of itself not just as a business, but as a responsible steward of the community. Grab & Give is an idea born of caring for our community and its people." 

Whole Foods doles out droves of dinners

So says Ben Friedland, marketing coordinator for Whole Foods's Rocky Mountain region. The Grab & Give program lets customers purchase pre-packaged meals from the store for needy families, and it just wrapped up the season after raising $418,521 -- or over 60,000 meals for families of four. 

In a time when tales of corporate greed are rampant, it's nice to hear of some company proactively helping its community. Particularly when the company's founder is making a whopping one dollar a year. -- Tyler Nemkov
