5% Day, Benefitting Beecher's Flagship Foundation
Wednesday, September 18th
6:00 AM - 10:00 PM
Bellevue, Redmond, Lynnwood, Roosevelt Square, South Lake Union

Be sure to save some shopping for Wednesday, September 18!  Our Bellevue location, along with Redmond, Lynnwood, Roosevelt Square, and South Lake Union locations will be donating 5% of the day's sales to the Beecher's Flagship Foundation.  The Flagship Foundation is dedicated to working to change the way America eats by empowering kids, families and teachers with information and tools to make healthy food choices for life. 

The Flagship Foundation provides "Pure Food Kids" workshops free to schools (focusing on 4-5th grade students), homeschool, after-school and summer programs, as well as parent groups in the Seattle and New York City metro areas.

The workshops use fun, hands-on and interactive “food detective” challenges to spark curiosity about what’s really in the foods we eat, teach people how to read nutrition labels and ingredient lists and raise awareness about how food companies are marketing to us.

We're celebrating the grand opening of Café UBUNTU. Café UBUNTU is a project of CTC International and has been funded by Whole Foods Market and the Whole Foods Market Team Member Volunteer Program. It will be the first ever bakery Maai Mahiu, Kenya. The café will not only be self-sustaining and create jobs, it will also offer modern bathroom accommodations and become a beacon for travelers and tourists, thereby improving the quality of life for the community.
Café UBUNTU will also be a much-needed health... and nutrition resource center for the Rift Valley. The menu will offer delicious crepes, espresso, and farm-to-table options catered to the local community and the roughly 1 million tourists who drive through Maai Mahiu each year.

For every brewed coffee drink purchased at the coffee bar on September 29, we will buy a drink for someone at Café UBUNTU…up to $12,500 worth! (Considering that a cup o’ joe costs $0.50 at Café Ubuntu, this is a lot of coffee!)

Feed Homeless Kids this Holiday Season!
Wednesday, December 31st
12:00 AM - 1:00 AM
Whole Foods Market Lynnwood,

Did you know? 400 homeless students in the Edmonds School District may go hungry over the weekend. Often these students leave school Friday, and do not have another meal until Monday morning. The Nourishing Network is a weekend meal program for homeless and low-income families in the Edmonds School District.

We are collecting donations at the registers throughout November and December. For every $30 donated, one student receives 3 snacks and 6 meals over the weekend, enough to keep their minds nourished. Money raised will be used to supply high-quality, nutritious and easy open food items from Whole Foods Market like canned tuna, canned soups, cereals, aseptic milks,  fruit snacks, peanut butter and more.

To learn more about the Nourishing Network and the work of the Foundation for Edmonds School District: www.foundationesd.org.
