Whole Foods Market gives 10 cents per bag to customers who re-use shopping bags for their purchased groceries. Customers have the option to take that off their bill, or donate it to a local nonprofit organization. This program reduces our impact on the environment and now supports local nonprofit groups. Between January 1, 2014 and March 31, 2014 donations made at Whole Foods Market - Galleria in Brentwood benefit Ready Readers. Ready Readers is a St. Louis non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring preschool-age children from low-income communities to become successful readers. Meet Ready Readers in our store today, and find out more about being one of the 550 volunteers who read weekly to 8,000 preschool children attending 162 early childhood centers in St. Louis.  Each child also receives 7 new, quality books a year – a total of 60,000 books a year.
