Internships at Whole Foods Market

Internships with a Purpose

At Whole Foods, the work you do as an intern can give back to the community, world, and environment.
​​​​​​​You’ll work on projects that matter — no matter what department you’re in.

Be a Force for Good

Our purpose is to nourish people and the planet. Our three foundations: Whole Planet, Whole Cities, and Whole Kids all work to make the world a better place. No matter where you work in this company, you will help better the lives of people locally and globally.

Impactful, Hands-On Experience

Instead of refilling everyone's coffee, you will be responsible for leading projects that have real, long-lasting impact. You will learn industry-specific skills and apply them to your projects. Since you will be able to help shape your goals, the sky is the limit for you here.
