I love it when people get together to give back and support the local community. That’s why I just wanted to share this info about the Whole Foods Market Kids Day of Service.
Whole Foods Market stores across the country are joining up with families in their community to celebrate a Kids Day of Service from September 1-14. At the end of each volunteer effort, families can enjoy a free salad lunch and learn about the healthy eating resources courtesy of Whole Foods Market’s Whole Kids Foundation.
Here is a list of all the fun family activities going on with the Whole Foods Market stores in southern Connecticut:

Attendees are asked to bring a non- perishable food donation to the event for the Newtown Food Bank.
