Whole Foods Market Shoppers Donate $1.4 M To Support School Salad Bar Initiative

October 13, 2010: 10:30 AM EST

Acting as a conduit for donations to the Salad Bar Program of non-profit Food Farming Foundation (F3), Whole Foods Market energized its shoppers to donate $1.4 million to provide 570 schools with salad bar kits and training manuals. Both Whole Foods and F3 professionals were thrilled with the outpouring of support during the seven-week drive and feel it shows how important healthy school lunches are for many families. To qualify for grants under the program, schools must participate in the National School Lunch Program, be located within 50 miles of a Whole Foods Market store, be dedicated to maintaining a viable salad bar for at least two years and be able to continue the program long-term. Grants for the salad bar kits will be awarded in January.
