Wow! One hundred dollar gift certificate to Whole Foods! My husband, Dad to two beautiful children, would love to be served a nice glass of organic wine on the back deck with an appetizer of red grapes and sliced cheese on fresh bread with some olive oil with herbs for dipping. Darling daughter can fix a lovely organic salad with fresh dressing and proud son can prepare wild-caught fish on the grill with his own creation of side dishes. Finish this lovely meal with a special dessert, like Tiramisu, and an evening walk. Special. Memorable. Thanks for getting me to think about it.

It may sound corny, but my Dad loves your cornbread. His eyes light up when he sees it in my bag when I visit from NY. He's 93 and lived in NY for many years. He misses NYC so Whole Foods helps me each holiday bring a piece of the City to him. Happy Father's Day

Greetings Whole Food Staff! LOVE your new store on Kingsbury - it is the best! My family went to a wedding last summer and my father has not stopped raving about this garlic cheese that he had - he is a cheese fanatic in general, but he loved this particular cheese. Since I did not sample it and have no information about it, I am sure that Whole Foods would be able to provide the best there is. If I were to win the gift card, I would put together a scrumptious basket of cheese, crackers and wine and present it to my Dad with a big hug! Happy Father's Day to all of you! I will keep my fingers crossed that I win! All the best, Cindy

Because my dad has had juvenile diabetes since he was 17 and a recent kidney reciepient, our family has switched to a low salt diet, but at common grocery stores, thats often hard to find. Rice mixes, beans, canned foods, etc all have very high sodium levels. My dad would really appreciate buying some healthy and delicious low sodium foods with a gift card to Whole Foods! Sincerely, - Un-'Salted' daughter

Set up a grill outside the store and cook bison burgers for customers to purchase.

We moved here from California and only shopped at Whole Foods. We were thrilled to learn that we have a WF about 1 mile away at Columbus Circle. We plan to cook a seafood dinner and fun dessert for Dad from the recipes on the WF website. Happy Father's Day!

A gift card would be used for some great fish or steaks, which dad would love.

On Mother's Day we went to Whole Foods while out on a leisurely stroll. Everyone enjoyed looking at all the unique things Whole Foods offers. It would be nice to walk away with the things my husband wants instead of me for Father's Day.

I would love the gift card so I could buy my Dad some gourmet vegan food. I am a vegan & he is an omnivore. If I could, I would cook him the best vegan meal ever (with the help of Whole Foods products), save animals lives, promote healthy eating & veganism, & have the best Fathers Day ever! I am unemployed right now, so would really appreciate a helping hand in making the day special. Dad has done so much for me, I want to do something nice for him too. Thankyou!!

I will be buying fresh strawberries to dip in organic chocolate!! Also good food of any sort for my son, who is paying his own way through college would be greatly needed for us.

You could provide a special meal that people can come in and purchase for their dad's special day. It would be an easy way for families to celebrate. They could take the food to a park and have a picnic, take it home and eat, or tailgate before a sporting event. Winning a gift card would be a wonderful gift!!

My Dad is recovering from Prostate Cancer and dealing with residual, unidentifiable cancer still so for Father's Day, I would love to let him indulge but in a good way. My Dad has changed his lifestyle to make him more healthy so I would love to make him a dinner with free range chicken on the grill, organic beer, salad made with organic veggies, fresh whole grain bread and of course, some delicious gelato. We can't be that good all the time can we?

The gift card would provide the wonderful meat that my husband would BBQ for us! We'd supplement it with the veggie salads from the deli department and I'd save some for the apples that my husband likes that aren't around till fall!

With a nest empty of three children, and a momma bird who enjoys flying out to visit family, my dad fends for himself a fair amount of the year--and he loves firing up the grill. This summer, please, please give the man of the nest the incentive to purchase a delicious and sustainably farmed barnyard animal (or three!) to grill instead of the awful genetically engineered hormone-injected meat he settles on when we're not watching. My parents live in a small Virginia town without a WF, but my dad commutes to DC for work, so this would be a huge treat, and totally helps me incentivize my parents to invest in their health in the years to come.

Winning a gift card for my hubby would be the best because I would unleash him and let him buy his own "Health food" I have been trying to get him to eat healthier and this would intise him to do so(or At least I hope haha) Maybe some 365 products????

If I won a gift card to Whole Foods, I'd pack a gourmet picnic lunch with delicious foods from your great deli selection and treat my Dad to a picnic at the park. Growing up, he always likes to take us to the park for a picnic and some play.

This will be an unusal father's day at our house. It will just be my hubby Stephen & I, as all the kids are away.. Our babygirl who is away at college ask me to frame lots of pics and sit them in funny places so Dad would know she was here. One of their favorite things was to grocery shop together. So if we win a Whole Foods Card, I would prearrage pics of our kids to be displayed throughout the store. Then I could make like him and I need to run by WFS and SURPRISE it would really be "Stephen's Fathers Day with the kids" and he could pick the menu.....LOL!!!

My dad loves fresh bread & wine! For the longest time, I've gotten him a fresh loaf & a fine, old bottle.
