Noon – 3pm, Free, Reservations not required

Whole Foods Market gives 10 cents per bag to customers who re-use their own shopping bags for their purchased groceries. This program reduces our impact on the environment and supports local non-profit groups. Throughout January, February and March, customers will have the choice to accept their cash refund or donate the cash back to our store’s chosen nonprofit organization, Action for Autism (AFA). AFA’s mission is to continually strive to work with individuals, families, and organizations to see that anyone with autism should, to the extent possible, receive therapies, resources, and support to help them attain their highest potential. Founded in 2008, AFA recognizes that nearly 1 in every 68 children born today will be diagnosed with autism. Therefore, they continue to address the growing need to assist children and their families with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Finally, Action for Autism, through their AFA Academy, serves children 18 months to 21 years of age with education and therapy services. Meet a representative from AFA in our store today, or for additional information, go to https://www.afastl.org/. The first 25 customers who stop by their table will receive a free recycled plastic bag.
