Shop at Whole Foods and Help Feed Hungry Kids

Share Our Strength

I was in my local Whole Foods yesterday, and I could see tempers flaring all around me. What would Thanksgiving be without a little hand to hand combat, after all?  As much fun as it is playing bumper cars with shopping carts, it’s important to take a step back and think about those less fortunate.  Like the more than 17 million kids in the U.S. who are at risk of hunger. Yes, that’s nearly 1 in 4.

Whole Foods is actually making it easy for us all to help those in need – just by shopping there. As I was waiting in line yesterday, I noticed that Whole Foods is partnering with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® Campaign to end childhood hunger in America – and they they have lots of coupons and deals right now where a portion of the sale will go to help the cause!

The No Kid Hungry Campaign supports local youth organizations, schools, faith-based institutions, food banks and other community programs in providing meals to needy children. With our donations, they can help local groups feed even more hungry kids.

Here are 4 easy ways you can help just by shopping at Whole Foods: 

  • For every pound of organic Fuji apples sold, a donation goes to the campaign. Together, Whole Foods Market, Rainier Fruit Company and Columbia Marketing International will donate two cents for each pound of organic Fuji apples sold from 11/14 to 12/25, up to a maximum of $30,000.
  • For each Whole Foods Market gift card ordered online, they will donate $1. Valid from 11/16 to 12/31.
  • You can donate online through the Whole Foodsonline ordering site and they’ll match your donation, up to $25,000.
  • Their vendor partners will donate 40 cents per redeemed specially marked coupons featured in The Whole Deal value guide. Arrowhead Mills, Celestial Seasonings and Terra Chips will donate 40 cents per coupon redeemed, up to a maximum of $25,000.  This month’s featured coupons include:
$1.00 off any Arrowhead Mills Baking Product
$1.00 off any box of Celestial Seasonings Tea
$1.00 off a bag of Terra Chips
So, remember as you are dashing through Whole Foods today:  just by taking a moment and thinking about what your are putting in your cart, you can help feed a child in need.  Which is really what this holiday is about.  And what you need to keep repeating to yourself over and over again when you get shoved in line by the cart behind you for the 10th time!
