I have so many food issues (low sugar, no milk, gluten, peanuts) that I have to accommodate for that it can get expensive on the budget, so this would definitely help to make the holidays less stressful financially. Thanks for the giveaway!

I want to watch football and not cook. This gift card would allow for an epic T-giving.

I am making my first Thanksgiving. Friends, in-laws, and newborn babies are coming over, and I live in a one-bedroom apartment! Most are coming in from out of town. Having help from Whole Foods would allow me to calm down, be confident, and spend more quality time with these lovely people that I don't get to see very often. I care about them a lot, and food is love, so Whole Foods would help me express that to them.

I'd use the gift card to buy a prepared Thanksgiving meal. I've cooked Thanksgiving in the past at my house, but my Dad is stuck at his place this year for health reasons, and it will be so much easier to bring a meal over to him than cooking at his apartment.

This year is the first Thanksgiving I am hosting, in my studio apartment in New York City! My parents and brother are coming and staying with me, which will be a fun (if not crowded) experience! Our 250 square foot Thanksgiving will be memorable, and I hope to provide the delicious food for a wonderful holiday! A Whole Foods $250 gift card will help take the stress away from cooking and let me spend more time with my family. Everyone has much to be thankful for this year, so whoever wins this will be well-deserving!

I would love to buy all the ingredients and cook a massive world-cuisine-encompassing vegan Thanksgiving meal. I would not even buy a fake turkey. I would make all kinds of hearty veg dishes.

My Thanksgiving food purchases usually come out to about $150 each year. I would use the card to purchase my items and the rest for some of my neighbors who are not as fortunate as me.

Usually, Thanksgiving is a wonderful stress-free time for us in our home. However, this year I will be having surgery on November 13th and will be on leave from work for up to four weeks. Because I'm the cook in our home and because my husband wants me to follow the doctor's orders to rest after surgery, I will be unable to make our Thanksgiving dinner this year. We're also more limited with where we can buy a prepared Thanksgiving meal because I have Celiac Disease and cannot have gluten. Thank goodness for Whole Foods--with their gluten-free Thanksgiving meal option, I'll be able to order our Thanksgiving dinner this year while I'm recouperating from surgery!!

$250 would be used to have thanksgiving dinner for my family. We are all over the country, and this is the frist time in a few years that we are all going to be together. To make is less stressful on everyone we would probably order all our sides from Whole Foods, and buy a turkey to grill-- our family tradition. As we are a small family unit (8 adults and 2 kids), any left over funds would be used to buy ingredients for the local foodbanks and women's shelters. Thanksgiving is about thanks, and I am thankful my family is safe after this thunderstorm, and we have a house to keep us warm. Others werent as lucky, and by giving them something it will put less stress on them as well.

As I am only preparing a meal for two people, I would buy the turkey and fixings and prepare them myself. And, if I were lucky enough to win the $250 gift card, I would buy as many turkeys as possible and donate them to the local food bank.

We purchase our meal from the online ordering site and this year would be no different. Why mess with a good thing!

I'd use it to buy the needful for a spectacular dinner and save the rest for getting fun things to turn the leftovers into their own feasts!

I would be able to prepare enough to share our Thanksgiving meal with people who just incurred major losses due to Hurricane Sandy. We celebrate with our family at the shore (in Northfield, NJ), where they live, and bring nearly everything down with us from Philly (since I am a happier cook than my SIL is). The need down there is palpable and it would be nice to do something tangible (that my kids could learn from) to help meet that need.

Winning a $250 gift certificate from my favorite store in the world, would not only take away all the stress of the holidays, but make it the most memorable one yet!

I have a wedding to attend that same evening, so a gift of Thanksgiving food would certainly make my families day a lot less stressful! We would love to get some ready made items (mock chicken salad) and some ingredients (lots of potatoes) for a delicious and easy Thanksgiving lunch.

We welcome all to our Thanksgiving dinner that don't have a dinner to go to. That's what makes our Thanksgiving Happy!!!

I'd ordered the turkey and dessert; then spend time making creative sides!

I would use it to buy the turkey and try out some fancy vegetables I have never used before in order to get my family to try something new. Also a flavored oil would also help add a look spark to an oldie but goodie type of dish!

With 2 thanksgivings to go to the $250 would allow me to make my regular sides to take to the events, and buy a Turkey for us to have our own left overs for the next few days. Currently, we stuff ourselves on Thanksgiving and have minimal left overs for ourselves for the next day.

I would use the 250 gift card to order Thanksgiving dinner from your catering department along with making several other dishes for my family. Love Wholefood, eating healthy and being aware of what you put in your body everyday!

Winning the WF gift card would make such a difference in our lives right now...due to hard financial times as well as some unfortunate medical issues that have occured in our family. Despite all this ...we are truly blessed and try to continue to eat healthy.My family lives close to my parents who are "older" and it would be nice to provide all the food for the family this year and have it already prepared to take the stress load off of everyone...I do not have any days off of work this year (glad to have a job)...so having thanksgiving prepared would be outstanding!

This year we will be gathering together to do the dinner with out my father. My mother is bit overwhelmed by the thought of all of us in and her on her own. I have already volunteered to take on a lot of the cooking- which is hard for her to let go. This would make it easier- for her to know that it is also a gift and a smile from you all to our family. :)
