Kids Day of Service @ Great Plains SPCA
Saturday, September 14th
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Great Plains SPCA in Merriam, KS, FREE

Kids ages 5 and up with their families and friends are invited to join up with Whole Foods Market Metcalf Team Members for a two-hour volunteer project to assist the Great Plains SPCA animal shelter.  Afterwards, Whole Kids Foundation will provide a salad lunch for the volunteers. Sign up required for all participants, so we have enough lunch for everyone.   Find details and sign-up here: www.wfmmetcalfkidsdayofservice.eventbrite.com

 

Serving its communities is a core value for Whole Foods Market, and getting a chance to team up with customers and other community members to give back is all the more important.  These hands-on volunteer opportunities help connect local families and Whole Foods Market Team Members with the community and also provide a chance for access to and discussions about healthy food and eating habits.

 

For the Kids Day of Service at Great Plains SPCA in Merriam, KS we will help with the upkeep of the animal shelter and care for the cats and dogs.  Depending on the needs that day we will be doing a variety of projects that could include, but are not limited to: laundry, cleaning cat kennels, landscaping, general organizing, stuffing kongs with peanut butter, and if it works out we do outdoor dog bathing.  Sharing love, time and attention with the animals (as shown below) is an important aspect of the event as well.

Two-Catch Tuesday
Tuesday, September 2nd
8:00 AM
seafood depatment , 2 for $10

With grilling season in full force, we’re offering an amazing deal on some of our best fish for summer feasts. Our seafood teams in Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Idaho will hand-select some of their favorite fish each Tuesday just for you. Take your pick and get 2 portions for just $10. While our seafood team members can share their favorite recipes with you, here are a few pointers:

SALMON–Coat it lightly with oil and sprinkle it with salt and pepper, and let the salmon speak for itself. Then throw it directly on to the grill for 8-10 minutes. Salmon is fantastic with roasted young potatoes and grilled asparagus, but you really can’t go wrong.

MAHI MAHI–A milder fish, mahi mahi is perfect for kabobs, fish tacos, or Thai lettuce wraps that already have lots of other flavors going on. Marinade your mahi mahi in a citrus vinaigrette for 15-20 minutes, then grill it for about 8 minutes.

HALIBUT– This fish is best when grilled on a cedar plank which infuses a gentle and delicious naturally smoked flavor, plus keep the fish from falling into the fire. Ask a team member to point you in the right direction.

COD– Cod is an amazing entry fish for those looking for a milder flavor. It will simply take on whatever flavors you cook with it. Best grilled on a sheet of foil, this flakey fish is amazing with panko. Simply beat a couple of eggs, dip the fish into the egg, then cover it with panko breadcrumbs for a light and crispy breading. Serve with a slaw and Asian sesame dressing and your senses will thank you.
