People all over the world participated in the celebration. Search #SampleWholeGrains on social media to look back on the celebration! Below are some ways for us to refer:
- Take a quick video (30 seconds or less!) with your phone when you sample whole grains
- Show us: the whole grain you're sampling, and the Whole Grain Stamp on the package tells you how much whole grain is in the food (if any).
- Tell us: what whole grain you're trying, how it's made, what it tastes like, or what you like about it.
- Feeling too shy or in a hurry to post a video? Instead, share a photo!
- For best results: hold the phone horizontally while recording a video.
- Upload to Instagram. Tag @wholegrains_council in the caption.
- Give all nuts to your food bank or local restaurant: This has been a challenging year and the number of people facing food insecurity has increased dramatically. This year, we wanted to bring our community a little closer by sharing the goodness of whole grains with those who need it most. We ask companies, organizations and individual consumers to commit to donating whole grain products to a food charity of their choice.
