Feel Good News

Did you know that through our purchase of the new standardized recycling/trash/compost/landfill labels from RAA for our stores and the proceeds from a Miami metro 5% Day we were able to donate these labels to every public school K-12 in Miami-Dade (the 4th largest school district in the country)?

Please take 2 minutes to watch this video and wait for the very end where Whole Foods is thanked.

The labels are going out to the schools next week along with this instructional video – it’s amazing what a difference Whole Foods Market can make in the communities we serve. We are helping the next generation – RECYLCE RIGHT!

A very big thank you to the STL’s  for supporting the Recycle Across America initiative from the very beginning. And thank you to all the  Miami stores, Lauren, Carlye and Briana for all your work in making this happen.  

With a big heart, a lot of gratitude and joy……………….kd

WFM Feeds the Fire Folks

Thanks to Heather Larrabee for the following post.

There are about 400 or so firefighters and emergency personnel in Boulder this week as the efforts to put out Sunday’s Sunshine Canyon wildfire continue.

This morning we got to do something really special as a store and feed all those folks a power breakfast!

When we asked how we can help, the BFD responded with “calories, please!” We were happy to oblige with breakfast burritos, whole milk, OJ, popcorn and bananas!

Most of the firefighters had yet to arrive but when they do, they’ll be greeted by several tables full of food.

Huge thanks to our PFDS, Bakery and Grocery teams for helping to put it all together. And to Heather Larrabee for all the communication efforts between us and the fire training facility.

Tons of respect and gratitude for our firefighters, be sure to thank them every chance you get!
