AUSTIN — Whole Foods is promoting Share Our Strength's hunger awareness campaign.
Whole Foods is supporting Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign with several promotions:
Whole Foods will match donations up to $25,000 of funds donated online, WholeFoodsMarket.com/holidays, to the cause;
When shoppers purchase gift cards from Nov. 16 through Dec. 31, Whole Foods will donate $1 for every card purchased to No Kid Hungry;
When shoppers purchase organic Fuji apples from Nov. 14 through Dec. 25, Whole Foods' produce partners will donate up to $30,000 to the cause; and
When shoppers redeem Hain-Celestial coupons (which owns such brands as Arrowhead Mills, Terra Chips and Celestial Tea) — highlighted in Whole Foods Market’s Whole Deal sales flyer for the holidays — each coupon redeemed will garner a 40-cent donation to No Kid Hungry.
"The No Kid Hungry Campaign has an amazing mission that’s aligned with Whole Foods Market’s core values and we’re honored to team up with shoppers and vendors this holiday season to continue fighting childhood hunger," Whole Foods co-CEO Walter Robb said. "The approach to ending childhood hunger on the local, regional and national scale makes three meals a day a reality for thousands of children. As with our commitment to the Whole Kids Foundation, which aims to improve children’s nutrition, we believe that every child deserves to be nourished so they can reach their full potential."
