Whole Foods Market employees in Montgomery present check to the APC

The Alabama Partnership for Children (APC) participated in the Whole Foods Market 5% Community Giving Day at all five Alabama stores on October 17, 2019.

Volunteers were on-hand at all Alabama stores both mid-day and during the evening hours. The volunteers provided activities for children, such as creating an apple car snack using apple slices and grapes, and some even read books about healthy eating. Volunteers also spoke with many customers about the APC and how the organization supports child care programs across the state to develop healthy menus, and to increase their access to healthy foods — especially locally grown foods.

APC is grateful for this partnership with Whole Foods Market and the outpouring of support received from customers who took the time to learn about the APC’s great work in Alabama.

APC will receive $8,041.88 from this event, and plans to use these funds to organize a gardening grant for ECE programs!

Child care programs in Alabama that are interested in implementing Farm to Early Care and Education activities are encouraged to complete this short questionnaire for a chance to win a $70 Wal-Mart gift card!
