- What Amazon's Whole Foods means for workers everywhere
By Emma Hinchliffe - Friday Jun 16, 2017
Six months ago, Amazon caused fear for the long-term future of grocery store jobs with Amazon Go, its first experimental cashier-less grocery store.
But it was just one store. Amazon didn't have much of a presence in the real world. It's something to worry about but maybe not immediately.
On Friday, those concerns suddenly become a lot more tangible when Amazon announced that it had agreed to buy Whole Foods for $13.7 billion.
The acquisition solidifies Amazon's growing dominance in the grocery market, from delivery through Amazon Fresh to plans to revolutionize in-person grocery shopping. Owning Whole Foods will ingratiate Amazon even more into every aspect of its customers' lives—and in this case, the lives of especially high-income shoppers.

- This App Will Help Restaurants Donate The Insane Amount Of Food They Usually Waste
By Eillie Anzilotti - Tuesday Jun 13, 2017
With the help of a new mobile platform, MealConnect, that streamlines donations from stores and restaurants has facilitated 737,000 pickups and moved over 333 million pounds of food–enough for 278 million meals.
Americans toss out, on average, 72 billion pounds of safe, edible food each year. Around 52 billion of those pounds flow from manufacturers, restaurants, and grocery stores into landfill. Feeding America, a nationwide network of over 200 food banks, has developed a new tech platform called MealConnect to intercept some of that trash-destined food and divert it toward the one in eight food-insecure people in the United States.
- Is Whole Foods a healthy option for Amazon?
By Cyrus Radfar - Monday Jun 19, 2017
Over the past few years we’ve seen Amazon testing new ways of getting groceries in consumers fridges, with Amazon Fresh, Amazon Fresh Pickup, drone delivery, and Amazon Go. As I look back with this acquisition, I can’t help to think, “Were they just preparing for this the whole time or did they realize they couldn’t do it alone?” Read More

- How a gang of celebrity moms is helping make sure families don't have to choose between diapers and food
By Rebecca Ruiz - Wednesday Jun 21, 2017
Earlier this month, Kerry Washington tweeted a video about dirty diapers to her 4.6 million followers.
The minute-long clip featured the Scandal star and mom of two talking not about her infant son, but about the fact that too many parents can't afford diapers and have to choose between them and other essentials like food and medicine.
"It's a crime that that would be true, that you would have to choose between feeding your kid or changing their diaper," Washington says.More about Celebrities, Social Good, Activism, Diapers, and Kerry Washington
