There are plenty things to dislike about Austin’s meganaut of a grocery store; Whole Foods, but they’re doing some good work too.
Their Whole Kids Foundation just turned 1 and they racked up some impressive numbers over the past year.
* They funded eight hundred and eighty six school garden grants via a partnership with Foodcorps. * They also funded fourteen hundred and fourteen salad bars across USA schools allowing access to fresh greens for over a million school kids.
* Raised over $2 million to keep these programs going.
