Wholesome Wave

Maker - Gabrielle Langholtz

Wholesome Wave

Maker Story

INCLUSIVE FOOD

Can we build healthy communities while building healthy local economies? Award-winning chef, Michel Nischan, and food policy expert, Gus Schumacher, think the answer is “yes.” So they founded Wholesome Wave.

Food assistance benefits average only about $1.41 per person, per meal. That makes healthy, local food unaffordable for families at or near the poverty line. To help vulnerable families improve their diet, Wholesome Wave has a combination of programs.

Families can receive double the amount of SNAP benefits when they’re used on fruits and veggies at local markets. Another initiative encourages hospitals to help patients at risk for diet related illnesses get healthy foods. And Wholesome Wave connects institutions with local food suppliers to broaden the reach of better nutritional options.

Armed with the resources to start making healthier food choices, these same communities are also helping support local farmers. Making the food system more inclusive is changing lives and local economies—just as Michel and Gus had hoped.
