This holiday season, Whole Foods Market along with its shoppers and supplier partners will help end child hunger by donating to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.
“One in five children in America struggle with hunger, but Share Our Strength believes that childhood hunger is a solvable problem. Whole Foods Market shares our commitment to nutrition education, and together, we will help ensure families have access to the food and knowledge their children need to grow and thrive,” said Billy Shore, chairman and CEO of Share Our Strength.
Shoppers will find a number of ways to support this effort including:
- Donating online at wholefoodsmarket.com/holidays, beginning October 27. Whole Foods Market will match online donations up to $25,000.
- Purchasing Whole Foods Market gift cards online at wholefoodsmarket.com/shop from November 16 through December 31. The company will donate $1 for every card purchased.
- Purchasing organic Fuji apples from Nov. 14 through Dec. 25 and Whole Foods Market’s produce partners will donate up to $30,000 to the cause.
- Redeeming Hain-Celestial coupons (Arrowhead Mills, Terra Chips and Celestial Tea) highlighted in Whole Foods Market’s Whole Deal sales flier for the holidays. For each coupon used, 40 cents will be donated to No Kid Hungry.
“The approach to ending childhood hunger on the local, regional and national scale makes three meals a day a reality for thousands of children. As with our commitment to the Whole Kids Foundation, which aims to improve children’s nutrition, we believe that every child deserves to be nourished so they can reach their full potential,” said Walter Robb, co-CEO of Whole Foods Market.
