Food and it's role in our life takes on a special meaning during Ramadan as beginning and breaking our fast each day helps makes us more open to meaningful reflection. One of my favorite memories is that of my friend who introduced me to Islam. I remember eating at her house one evening and was about to empty my leftovers into the trash when she asked me with all sincerity and solemnity "You really can't finish that food? Don't you know that when you throw food out, it cries?" At the time I didn't know if this was a saying from her country or from her religious beliefs. Yvonne Maffei embodies this spirit of the moral & spiritual implications of food through her work & I am so happy & proud she wrote this article for WF's.

This is great! Finally a major retailer has recognized it's Muslim customers! We will drive an extra 5 miles for groceries to shop at Whole Foods due to this effort on their part. We appreciate this!

@Rizwan Uquili, Currently our selection of halal meat is very small and available in just a couple of regions. We suggest contacting your local Whole Foods Market store to see what halal options are available: http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/

Wholefoods just gained a loyal customer in me. I'll have to drive quite a ways, but they deserve my business after this promotion.

Love the blog. It's great to feature Ramadan here. Perhaps I should make the drive to Whole Foods more often!! Question for Whole Foods - do you actually feature Halal meats & chicken ? Thanks.

I always used to drive past Whole Foods on my way to Trader Joe's, and never thought twice about it. Whole Foods just earned my respect, and of course, a loyal customer. Thanks for recognizing Ramadan!
