Cool: Patrons at the Interbay Whole Foods can donate their $.05 Bag Refund to Solid Ground’s anti-hunger programs from now through April 11, 2010.
Donations can be designated to one of three Solid Ground programs:
- Apple Corps, which fights the root causes of obesity, malnutrition and hunger in underserved communities and supports nutrition and physical activity programs, policies and partnerships at Seattle Elementary Schools.
- Lettuce Link, which creates access to fresh, nutritious and organic produce, seeds and gardening information for families with lower incomes and educates the community about food security and sustainable food production.
- Operation Frontline, which coordinates and trains volunteer chefs and nutritionists to teach six-week classes on nutrition, healthy cooking and food budgeting for individuals at risk of hunger and malnutrition.
Last Fall, Whole Foods donated proceeds from their Community 5% Day fundraiser to Operation Frontline! We appreciate the continued partnership and support!
