Partnering with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers

I’m very happy to announce that Whole Foods Market has signed an agreement with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) designed to help improve wages and working conditions for Florida tomato pickers. I put together this blog entry to explain the steps we took that led us to make this agreement.

Preparing for Ike in Houston

We're in the midst of preparing for what may potentially be one of the worst storms in Southeast Texas since 1900.  We operate four stores in Houston and one store in Sugar Land which will be closing tonight at 10:00 p.m. and shall remain so until further notice due to Hurricane Ike. Those stores are at:
  • 4004 Bellaire Blvd, Houston, Texas 77025
  • 2955 Kirby Drive, Houston, Texas 77098
  • 15900 Southwest Freeway, Sugar Land, Texas 77478

**Update: Friday, September 5th** We are well on our way to recovery! A huge public thank you to everyone who has helped us get to this point so we can help meet the needs of our communities. There’s more to be done and we are up for the challenge!
