Restaurant Roll Call: Whole Foods Market

THIS Thursday, April 26th, is Dining Out for Life day! Many of you have already made your reservations to dine out at one of your favorite participating restaurants for lunch, dinner or both!

Maybe your schedule is hectic and you aren't yet sure if you will be able to dine out to support those in our area battling life-challenging illnesses. No worries - we have you covered. You can still support Food & Friends this Thursday by DINING IN!

Stop by any of the 4 Whole Foods Market DC locations (Foggy Bottom, P Street, Georgetown & Tenleytown) and select your meal from their Salad Bar or Hot Bar. You'll be grabbing a great meal on the go and 50% will be donated to Food & Friends! Dining Out this Thursday couldn't get easier.

Restaurant Roll Call: Whole Foods Market!

WHY DO YOU SUPPORT FOOD & FRIENDS?

Whole Foods Market aligns itself with the same mission and concept of fostering community and giving. As we bring the highest quality and freshest foods to our markets, we want Food & Friends to succeed with this mission as well.

WHY DO YOU PARTICIPATE IN DOL?


This is our first time participating in Dining Out for Life. We try our best to meet our community and to give back through store donations. As well as supporting events such as Dining Out for Life, each store supports a 5% Day four times a year, where 5% of that days sales will be donated to a local nonprofit organization. Overall, our community giving well exceeds 5% of our total net profits each year!

WHAT MAKES WHOLE FOODS MARKET UNIQUE?

While our store donations provide the backbone of our community giving, we also give back to the larger national and global community. Our Whole Planet Foundation fights poverty through micro-lending in rural communities around the world. There are approximately 200,000 clients that we have helped through Whole Planet Foundation. We also support projects that relate directly to organics and environmentally-friendly production methods, animal welfare, sustainable seafood, and healthy families and nutrition. We’ve recently launched a Whole Kids Foundation's whose mission is to improve children's nutrition. Check out one of our school gardens that we helped ‘grow’ into one of the best teach and learn gardens in the city, The Farm at Walker Jones.

WHAT'S NOT TO MISS AT WHOLE FOODS MARKET?
Try our Organic Salad Bar! Not only do we offer organic produce throughout the store, you now have it available at the salad bar! Some of our favorites are the Garlicky Kale. Even those who refuse to eat kale fall in love with it.
