Alexandria, VA – All of us deserve to have access to healthy foods to help nourish our bodies, minds, and active days. On Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. you can do your part to support the 2019 Whole Foods Market October Community Giving Day!

Whole Foods will be giving 5% of net sales from the day to Meals on Wheels America. Our own Senior Services of Alexandria will be one of the beneficiaries of this event. More than 490 Whole Foods Market locations will participate in the Community Giving Day by donating to organizations, projects and programs that support the mission of ensuring access to healthy food for all.
