Whole Foods Market Gateway, Donate Any Amount at Our Registers!

If you're visiting our stores in September, chances are you'll be asked to donate to the Whole Kids Foundation. The Whole Kids Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides grants for salad bars and gardens, here in Austin and all over the United States. 100% of your donation goes directly to funding these projects, as Whole Foods Market covers the administrative costs for the Foundation. So go ahead...round up your change and help us grow healthy kids! Learn more at www.wholekidsfoundation.org.
