Support a good cause simply by picking up your groceries!
When you shop at Whole Foods Market on Thursday June 27, Whole Foods will donate 5% of net sales (from all seven Manhattan stores!) to support The Battery Conservancy and its largest education and outreach program, Battery Urban Farm.
Here, at this one-acre organic learning farm, we are educating and inspiring 2,000 youth (preK-12) from all over NYC to grow and eat healthy vegetables, to green their communities, to say things like “I would rather stay here and eat salad than go to recess“, and so much more.
Join us in our good work, and support these and other thousands of children and young adults as they become student farmers and healthy eaters!
Find the store nearest you! Here are the Whole Foods Markets that will participate in June 27th’s 5% Day:
- Tribeca: 270 Greenwich Street
- Union Square: 4 Union Square South
- Bowery: 95 East Houston Street
- Chelsea: 250 7th Avenue
- Midtown East: 226 E 57th Street
- Columbus Circle: 10 Columbus Circle
- Upper West Side: 808 Columbus Avenue
Only a handful of organizations each year are chosen to receive a 5% Day from Whole Foods so we feel very honored to have been selected.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, June 27, and get your 4th of July shopping done early! You’ll be promoting garden education, empowering student farmers, and helping to build greener communities–all with a trip to the market.
