Community Support Day for the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy’s Farm to Childcare Program

Whole Foods Market St. Paul, Minneapolis, and Minnetonka

Thursday, June 6th

 

Stock up and shop for a cause during our Community Support Day at Whole Foods Market St. Paul, Minnetonka , and Minneapolis locations. On Thursday, March 6th, we'll donate 5% of our sales to the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. The money raised will go towards their new program, Farm to Childcare.  The goal of this initiative is to bring fresh, locally grown product to children in daycare throughout Minnesota.  This project builds on IATP’s widely-recognized leadership in building Minnesota’s Farm to School movement, and focuses on the early childhood years when life-long taste preferences and eating habits are at their most formative.
