I would buy all the ingrediants and cook things myself. I truly enjoy getting up early and cooking all day for Thanksgiving. A meal prepared by me and enjoyed by friends and family is the epitome of giving back to those that support me throughout the year.

I love Whole foods, let that be said, I think I'm in there almost daily. As much as I would love the gift card for myself in the spirit of giving I do know a family that are struggling to feed three kids right now, the Dad has cancer and is unable to work but somehow has a huge smile in his face everyday and the Mom is trying to work and run the house, I know she could use it more than me. It would light up her face and relieve the stress, especially if she didn't have to cook. They are an amazing family that do everything for their kids, I already give Thanks to know them.

I would use the $250 gift card to purchase the entire Thanksgiving Dinner so there would be NO stress. It would all be done for me and I could relax and enjoy the time with my family!

I would make a meal to share with anyone who has suffered as a result of the storm.

hi. I just lost my dad and 2 uncles and my family has been in crisis. we have all been surprised at the support and strength we have discovered. and now we are exhausted! this extra help from Whole Foods would allow our family to purchase some (or maybe most) of the Thanksgiving dinner already deliciously prepared and then splurge on some extra treats that we wouldn’t normally have. and besides, my younger brother has JUST started eating healthy – what encouragement! Great opportunity – thanx Whole Foods.

I am getting married in December so having a delicious meal that is all organic and fresh would just be the best thing ever. I love to cook that way, so this would add to the fun!

I would use it to buy all the ingredients to cook a great meal! I don't live that close to your store, so we only get there once in a while, but this would certainly be an incentive.

Although I've ordered a fully cooked TG meal from WF in past years, (which rocked!) I do find that I love to cook the full meal myself. Having a gluten allergy, I have to be careful. I'd use the gift card to purchase all my ingredients, making sure they were all gluten free.

To make our Thanksgiving less stressfull, I will be buying all of our favorite natural ingredients at Whole Foods and using my slow cookers to make the day easier. While the all natural WF turkey is cooking in the oven, my whole foods brand stuffing and organic chicken stock will be in one slow cooker, the sweet potato casserole will be in another slow cooker, green bean casserole in another slow cooker, and my baked brie appetizer with puff pastry will be in another slow cooker. It might seem strange to own 4 slow cookers but on Thanksgiving, they really help! Also, WF is the only place I can find all natural/organic jellied cranberry sauce! Thank you!

I would definitely choose to buy the turkey and gravy (too small an oven and too much time involved here) and opt to make the sides with seasonal, organic produce from my Whole Foods Market. I think I'd also buy a selection of their fabulous seasonal pies and rolls, too. Then, I could focus my energy on the few things I am good at: appetizers, cranberry relish, salads and vegetable side dishes. That's relaxing for me!

I would buy everything - turkey, sides, etc., as long as they weren't too salty. I am on a low-sodium diet.) I would consider myself blessed because I have special needs children and this would take away the stress of preparing Thanksgiving dinner. Then I would bless others. I would donate leftover money or buy the food from Wholefoods and take it to a local homeless shelter or church so others could eat Thanksgiving dinner, too.

My dad and sister are coming in andI have a small kitchen with one oven......so I would use it to buy the extras premade so we can enjoy a great "homemade" meal without having to make everything. Thanks

Being a one-income family, I would use the $250 to buy everything for dinner and make it myself. I love baking but I would probably buy some individual desserts too, to make is even more delicious and special. I would try to save enough to buy another family in need a turkey for their dinner. Definitely stress-free, and guilt free!

If I were to win your gift certificat, I would go into your store and select most of my fresh fruit and vegetables to make everything myself accept the turkey. Since I am a vegetarian, I would choose to purchase your organic readily prepared turkey and serve to my family and friends. That would be a wonderful feast to share.

As a student far away from my family, I like to recreate the meal that my family makes every year, and Whole Foods always has all of the necessary ingredients. This turns into a fun day of cooking with friends. A little help from Whole Foods would make a lot of friends very happy!

I'd be able to prepare and enjoy a wholesome meal that my body could recognize as food!!! I would be able to explore a much larger selection of healthy choices and ingredients that celebrate life and ME! I live in a food desert ( an area with a paucity of grocery stores). I'd be able to experience a meal inside the cornucopia.

I work as a nurse 3 to 11 the day before Thanksgiving yet somehow everybody (family, friends and coworkers) show up for the big day. Just thinking about having some help from Whole Foods is exciting and I would go crazy with breads and desserts and Gravy! I hate making gravy. Thanks!

I would use the gift card to buy a Whole Foods brined, free range turkey plus all the fixings and make it at home for my family and friends! What a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving!

Every year this seems more and more stressful.. with many generations and some with dietary restrictions, and a desire to serve wholesome, organic, local foods, it would be so helpful to be able to pick out everything I need from Whole Foods.. Thank you

Not having to cook would be the greatest gift. Caring for physically challenged family members will be so much easier and make a great day for thanks.

Being domestically impaired, I'd probably order some precooked items and make a few side dishes for my family. The gift card would be a huge help because this year we'll be combining Thanksgiving with my 2 sons' birthday parties. My 16 year old's party had to be cancelled because of the storm and my soon-to-be 5 year old's birthday is just before Turkey Day. The card would allow me to make them a super special and memorable meal (and an extra delicious cake!).
