Donor Q&A: Whole Foods Market
Hey there, Greenheart! We have someone special for you to meet. Below is a photo of our friend Eric Hominick from Whole Foods Market. Whole Foods is a proud partner of Greenheart International and donated over $14,000 to Camp Greenheart this year. This provided scholarships for 28 campers!
During the month of #GreenheartGratitude, we want to get to know our network of supporters and change-makers a little more. Read below for a Q&A with our Greenheart family member, Eric.
What do you think makes Greenheart unique?
Greenheart International has truly created a unique system that helps kids, and families, reach their full potential – even when they feel there is no hope in doing so. I think Greenheart utilizes a wide range of positive, healthy and proactive initiatives that helps create a successful future for all its participants.
How does the vision of Greenheart directly align with your own views?
The core values of Whole Foods Market and Greenheart go hand in hand. From our commitment to the community through our donations, sponsorship and partnership programs to helping make the planet become sustainable for our future generations.

Each location has such diversity in it’s culture and I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to visit these locations both for vacation, and through personal efforts to understand the different cultures throughout our beautiful planet.
