I would love a card because I would purchase some great items for a family brunch. We always buy our special events products at Whole Foods! I will pick up a few things in the health dept. for my husband and Dad as well. Thanks.

This gift card could make my husband's Father's Day so special, because with our budget being SO tight, we've had to cut our grocery spending. We could buy him some steaks, a wonderful Whole Foods bakery dessert, and more!

Well, I am a single mother and the kids have told me that I am also their "father" especially on days like Father's Day, since he is not around. Since I work two jobs and am tired when I get home, it would be wonderful to have dinner ready and waiting for me! Whole Foods has a "whole" section of pre-cooked, hot foods that look and smell delicious!

my daddy is turning 86 and loves seafood! i would make him a delicious seafood bisque. i would find a variety of soft bread for his dentures. i would splurge on some sugar free items since he is diabetic, including a variety of treats and juices. anything else he wants is his! i love you daddy!

my dad died many years ago, so if i won the $100 gift card, i would treat myself to a handful of steaks and some nice potatoes. maybe a few veggies since my kids are always telling me i need to eat better. not much into beer, so maybe some nice tasting grape juice.

My dad could use a gift card because he works so hard to provide for us. It would be fun to get him a treat since he always gives to us.

My father is 72 years old. He has been sober and a recovering alcoholic for 35+ years and had been recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. All of this really impedes things I can buy him. He does still enjoy the finer things in life cheeses, "meat from NYC" (they live near Syracuse,NY)an Whole Foods also has a great selection of NA beers! The gift card would enable me to get him something that he would really appreciate and can have!!!!

Well, since my Dad is 3 states away...& if we were winners of $100 gift card I could surprise him with some wonderful marinades from Whole Foods, and not just one kind, since he LOVES to bar-b-q big time!!!! He would definitely be surprised since we usually call him & send a small gift; like boring socks.....this would make Pop Hop!

My dad loves grilling and could work his magic on some seafood from the market along with some nice fresh grilled veggies.

Getting dad good, wholesome food from Whole(some) Foods would be the first step towards a lifetime of healthy eating. What better gift can there be?

My husband LOVES Whole Food's tuna skewers with Thai Marinade. We plan to grill for Father's Day; and normally, the skewers are a little out of our price range. I would love to win the gift card and surprise him with a great dinner!

Pop hops over the Whole Foods jolly beans. They keep him moving faster on his long walks. Next stop, we tackle the Miami marathon together.

Take him to a baseball game. Pack a picnic lunch made with fresh lunch meats and cheeses.

Nothing beats a loving homemade meal! Our family doesn't have much ( we're also enduring layoff's) but one thing we love do is cook together! Winning this gift card would allow the kids and I to create an unforgettable & amazing meal to honor the head of our household in a way that wouldn't be possible otherwise. Knowing my husband, if anything was left over, he would insist that we spend it on special treats from your bakery because that's the kind of person he is. Thank you Whole Foods and we hope you come to Long Beach, CA real soon!

Why not do a grilling demonstration at your local Whole Foods on fathers day for all our grilling fathers? Perhaps they walk away with a free grilling gift? Specials on grilling essentials? Yumm!

I would like to get organic ingredients for a cake. Also, some free range chicken and organic vegetables to bbq. It is always much more special to cook at home, especially healthy food.

A great bottle of wine would make my dad one happy pop. And a fantastic, home-cooked meal would just put him over the top of happy.

I've been trying to get my parents to eat better over the last few years. Maybe giving them a taste of free range and wild caught meats/fish and organic produce would keep them coming back for more. I want to make a lovely Father's Day dinner using Whole Foods products so my family can have quality food and quality time together.

My dad will tell you that “Real men don’t eat dessert” but put a slice of Red Velvet Cake in front of him and he turns into a boy. My dad lives 1200 miles from me, but I made his day 10 years ago when I bought the house next door to him. Now, my husband & I spend our winters in Florida with my dad. I have learned over the years there is one thing my dad looks forward to more than anything when I come to visit-- Whole Foods Red Velvet Cake. Red Velvet is his favorite cake, and while it is hard to find during the year, I can usually have it specially made for his birthday in March. I am going to surprise him this year for Fathers Day and fly down to see him. I‘m going to ring his doorbell with ,that very special Red Velvet Cake in hand. I know my dad appreciates the extra special things I do for him, especially this cake. I don’t mind spending extra time or money to get this cake for him because Whole Foods makes the cake with superior ingredients. Only the best for my dad!

I want my dad to learn how to cook basics. I'd find some easy, but NOT high-waste things that could be made into simple recipes for him. He should've learned cooking decades ago, but now I hate the idea of him eating so much processed food!

Our son says "chocolate cake!" My husband loves the vegan chocolate cake from Whole Foods bakery. Plus, it would be a splurge to get some picnic items from the prepared foods area, and maybe pick up an Amy's frozen pizza for later in the day. Daddio is a fan of the Amy's Roasted Veggie pizza. Happy Father's Day!

My husband has been asking for a big breakfast for almost a year now, and also a long afternoon nap.
