At Whole Foods Market Santa Barbara, we are intimately connected to the health and economy of the community we serve and feel it is our responsibility to give back to our community in meaningful ways.  Twice a year, our store holds community giving days (otherwise known as “5% Giving Day”) where five percent of that day’s net sales are donated to a local nonprofit or educational organization.  If your organization is interested in applying for this program, please contact Marketing at 805.837.6959.  *Available for Tri County nonprofits only.
