Whole Foods is part of the local community and is passionate about supporting the local causes that are important to their shoppers and neighbors. It's a given. Each store donates food to area food banks and shelters. Whole Foods has food; they know how to get it to people who need it. Done.
Several times a year, Whole Foods 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. Whole Foods team members are constantly volunteering their time and expertise to an assortment of local non-profits.
