South Florida Whole Foods host events benefitting Whole Kids Foundation

 

Boca Raton, Fla – As part of their continued effort to educate children on issues of health and wellness, Whole Foods Market South Florida locations will host a number of exciting events benefitting the Whole Kids Foundation.

All proceeds from events tied to Whole Kids Foundation will benefit the nonprofit organization whose mission is to support schools and inspire families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. The organization, which uses the money raised to help put gardens and salad bars in local schools, has impacted more than 4 million children in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. since 2011. Throughout the years, they have been able to fund more than 3,600 school gardens and have implemented 4,600 salad bars in schools. September is Whole Kids Foundation month but this year, Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016, will be reserved as Whole Kids Foundation Day in Florida, and five percent of the day’s salad bar proceeds from all Florida locations will be donated to the cause.

Additional Whole Kids Foundation events will include:
