Honey bees and other pollinators are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat, yet US honey bee colonies are declining at an annual rate of 30% or more. Any way you look at it, that’s an unsustainable equation for a reliable food supply. Learn more about what you can do to support a healthy bee population and sample some of the foods in each department that bees help to produce each and every day!

 

**Special Event Alert**

 

Kids and parents are invited to join us at 1 pm for a special peer-taught workshop with young entrepreneur Mikaila, owner of BeeSweet Lemonade! She will be teaching Kids Club participants all about the importance of bees and will lead a bee-friendly flower planting activity. Kids will get to take their flowers home! Afterwards, participants will enjoy juice and cookies provided by Whole Foods Market. Sign up today with Guest Services as space is limited! (512) 345-5003
