Making a Difference
In March 2017, we launched our Making a Difference monthly feature, highlighting brands giving back to their communities or contributing to charities worldwide.
In April 2017, we started our own community service program! Staff volunteers their time with area non-profit associations. The Healthy Grocer is proud to be making a difference in our community.
Everyday, for over 20 years, The Healthy Grocer has been making a difference in our community and helping to be an environmental steward.
