Five percent of net sales to benefit Slow Food USA on October 18th
New York, NY – Slow Food USA announced that it will receive five percent of net sales from Whole Foods Market locations across nine states and 55 locations covering most of their Mid-Atlantic and South Regions on Thursday, October 18th as part of the company’s quarterly Community Giving Day.
Slow Food USA is a global grassroots organization that inspires individuals and communities to change the world through food that is good, clean and fair for all. The funds will support national campaign work focused on biodiversity and school gardens, and will also support local Slow Food chapters in their important work on the ground.
“We are proud to partner with Whole Foods Market,” says Anna Mulé, director of communications and campaigns for Slow Food USA. “Food is a delicious way to start a conversation around culture, community, the environment, and justice. Whole Foods will help us bridge diverse groups to celebrate good, clean and fair food for all.”
More than 465 Whole Foods Market locations will participate in the Community Giving Day by donating to organizations, projects and programs that support the mission of ensuring access to healthy food for all.
