We hope you’re hungry! Our friends at Wholesome Wave GA have an event planned that should fill you up. Tomorrow, January 9, they’re teaming up with Whole Foods Market who is donating 5% of all of the day’s proceeds back to Wholesome Wave. With the West Paces Ferry, Ponce, and Briarcliff store on board, you won’t even have to step far out of your way.
So what is Wholesome Wave GA? Well, it’s their mission to increase access to fresh, healthy, locally grown food at producer-only farmers markets in Georgia. And as if that wasn’t enough to make us fall in love, Wholesome Wave does it by doubling every federal or state nutrition benefit (SNAP, WIC, SFMND) dollar spent at their partner markets. This does everything from contribute to the local food economy (yes!), gives leverage to existing government food programs (support!), and encourages shopping local (please!). This also means that your dollar becomes two for both you and the farmer. Their positivity along with their unique financial incentives have brought a lot of growth to Wholesome Wave GA since their start in 2009.
Wholesome Wave is hoping to raise awareness about this event and it’s purpose. What can you do to help? By sharing your shopping list along with the tag #GOODGROCIES on whatever wild social media outlet you fancy, you’ll inspire as well as make a splash. Happy shopping friends!
