Trader Joe’s

TJ’s offer a free app that allows you to see featured products and find nearby stores. Their website has complete product lists for special diets (e.g. vegan and gluten free), and intricate guides for everything from party planning to pairing wine and cheese.

Wegman’s 

In addition to having dietitians on staff, Wegman’s has developed “Wellness Keys,” which are easy-to-recognize dots on products and recipes that show customers how each food fits into different diet plans, such as gluten-free and vegan. 

Whole Foods

Whole Foods employs a healthy eating specialist in each store, and is also heavily involved in the community. The company also provides low-interest loans to local farmers and food artisans through the Local Producer Loan Program. Their Whole Kids Foundation addresses children’s health issues through school gardens and Michelle Obama’s initiative, Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools.
