On Wednesday, April 8, Whole Foods Market will celebrate Community Giving Day. KCRW will benefit, as it receives 5% of net sales from the combined Los Angeles and Orange County stores that day.
As a company, Whole Foods Market is unique. Each store has a lot of latitude in deciding the best way to operate that individual store to meet the needs of the local community. That makes community giving really special and fun.
At Whole Foods Markets, the team members are part of the local community and they are passionate about supporting the local causes that are important to shoppers and neighbors. First off, it’s a given that each store donates food to area food banks and shelters. They have food; they know how to get it to people who need it. Then several times a year, our stores hold community giving days (otherwise known as “5% Days”) where five percent of that day’s net sales are donated to a local nonprofit or educational organization. The groups that benefit from these 5% Days are as varied as the communities themselves.
Eat well, be well and support KCRW!
