When you shop at our store on 5% Day, you are supporting an organization making a direct impact in our community. Five percent of net sales made on this day are donated to a local nonprofit, and this 5% Day will benefit Community Culinary School of Charlotte , which provides training and job search assistance in the foodservice industry for people who have experienced barriers to employment.
Specifically, funds raised will support the school’s Culinary Training Program, offsetting the costs of supplies, equipment and training needed to advance their students toward gainful employment.
Whole Foods Market stores give back to their communities throughout the year, and one such way is 5% Day, held quarterly. In 2012, Whole Foods Market stores raised a combined total of more than $5 million in proceeds through quarterly "five percent days" to support nonprofits in the local communities.
