Are you on Twitter yet? We are! If you follow @WholeFoods, you’ll get seasonal recipes, sales info, shopping and cooking tips, and lots more. With a healthy 2.1 million followers, we just can’t beat the real-time connection with our customers and friends on Twitter. We’ve even started a weekly hour-long chat on Twitter called “Dish.” The “Dish” twitter chat happens every Thursday at 6PM CST. Just pop onto Twitter.com and search for the hashtag #WFMdish to see what we’re dishing about. We’ll have new topics every week so there’ll always be something interesting to discuss with us and other “Dish” participants. Never participated in a twitter chat before? Here’s how it works: we jump-start the conversation with a few questions and then chat participants share their own thoughts, tips and info on the chosen topic. You don’t have to have a Twitter account to read the conversation, but if you want to add your thoughts, you can sign up for Twitter and use the hashtag #WFMdish to “dish” along with us. Interested? Get more details on how to get started with Twitter and participate in a chat in our WFMdish FAQs.
Mark your calendar because our next #WFMdish is Thursday, December 15, at 6PM CST. We’ll be dishing about “Cooking for the Holidays.” That’s a big topic and one that’s top of mind for lots of folks right now. We plan to cover:
Tried and true holiday recipes
Preparing the right amount of food for your party
Accommodating guests with food allergies
Special cooking tools to make life easier
We hope you’ll join us on Thursday to share your thoughts, questions and ideas. That’s what these chats are all about: friends getting together and sharing with each other. If there’s something you want to make sure we discuss on this week’s “Dish”, leave a comment below. We may not be able to get to all the topics suggested but we’ll sure try our best!
