A loan of $5,000 helped fund the launch of a new flavor which will help us to be carried in the remaining 3 regions of Whole Foods.

Corey's story

After a lifetime of experimenting with diet, I jumped at the opportunity to live with twelve tribes around the world and experience how our ancestors naturally lived. While subsisting with these tribes, I hand-ground corn in Mexico, foraged for sago grubs in Papua New Guinea, rice farmed in Indonesia, herded goats in Mongolia, beat taro in Brazil, ate dog in India, grilled breadfruit in Vanuatu, and sling-shot-hunted dik-dik in South Africa. Throughout my journey, I discovered that one simple principle was at the heart of enduring human nutrition: eat mainly whole fresh fruits and vegetables.

After this journey, I joined Whole Foods Market to learn how to make this principle thrive. Witnessing a great need for truly healthy on-the-go foods, I founded CORE Foods to make it possible for anyone to eat healthy anywhere, anytime. CORE Foods was founded as a not-for-profit business following the universal principle I observed in every tribe I lived with: treat others the way you want to be treated. With a loan from Whole Foods Market, I launched the CORE Meal on Earth Day 2010.
