Annual Prosperity Campaign

The idea of people striving to improve themselves and their communities is very familiar to Wellshire President and CEO, Louis B. Colameco III, who started the company out of his home with a few thousand dollars, a pager and no financial backing. From selling a few hams door to door, to seeing them ship out by the truckload, Colameco knows the meaning of being an entrepreneur and appreciates the vision of like-minded people working toward better lives with the support of Whole Planet Foundation.

Supporting Whole Foods Market locations across the country with donations of Hot Dogs for store barbeques, Corned Beef for special Reuben lunches, and even donating cents back for each Wellshire purchase made, gives Wellshire opportunities to lift up the globe from right here at home. Grounded in a deep appreciation for our commonality and with a deep respect for humanity, Wellshire is proud to offer customers healthy food choices and honored to be a part of changing lives around the world.
