Whole People - Whole Foods

ElsaatWholeFoodsOne of the Whole Foods Core Values is to “serve and support local and global communities,” and as a CCG Trainee Employer, they’ve done this in the Treasure Valley. By hiring some of our graduates, they’ve helped to break long standing barriers to employment and provide hope and help for people who really need it. Aside from this, they’ve gone above and beyond and come out to help us at the Farm in a team service group, managing to make a huge difference every time they come into contact with CCG. Elsa was hired by Whole Foods last year after completing Job Training at CCG. She came to the US from Eritrea, hoping to expand on her passion of cooking. The moment we met Elsa and saw the sparkle in her eye, it was apparent that we had a superstar in our midst. She fully engaged in the kitchen, taking time and care to master each skill taught. Elsa is able to shine bright at Whole Foods knowing that her employer values her. We are grateful to partner with great employers like Whole Foods. Thank you for supporting the community and individuals like Elsa!
