Who doesn't love free cheese samples? Join us in our stores on Saturday March 9, 2013 at 2pm CST as we simultaneously crack and sample over 400 wheels of authentic Parmigiano Reggiano across the US, Canada and the UK. Plus we'll have food pairings and more!

 

Our cheesemongers take cracking these wheels very seriously! There is a centuries-old art to opening the cheese wheels by using official tools (five different types of knives) so the internal crystalline structure and crumbly texture is left intact.

St. Pat’s Beer and Food Tasting

 

Come on in to Whole Foods Market and enjoy a Taste of something Irish.  The Irish have observed St. Patrick’s as a holiday for over 1,000 years. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast--on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage. Whether you are Irish, celebrate Lent, or just enjoy celebrating St. Pat’s day, stop into WFM to get a taste of the holiday!

The Robert Crown Center (RCC) for Health Education is committed to providing health education to all youth, regardless of their ability to pay.  All of the classes taught by RCC are subsidized by grant and individual funding, and many are offered free to low-income  schools, allowing for low-income populations in Chicago and its’ suburbs to prevent the health risks most common in their under-served neighborhoods. Those health risks include obesity and type 2 diabetes, sexually transmitted disease, and substance abuse. For more information about how RCC serves our youth, please visit robertcrown.org.
