Whole Foods Market & You: Helping the Environment and Burnaby Food First

Every time you shop at Whole Foods Market in Burnaby until the end of September, you have an opportunity to support Burnaby Food First. All you have to do is bring your own shopping bag, and then tell the cashier you'd like to donate the cost of a bag to Burnaby Food First.

Whole Foods Market partners with schools and non-profits through their Bag Refund Donation Program to help raise money for important community causes. At the register, customers have the option to receive the bag refund as cash back off their receipt or to donate it to one of three designated organizations each fiscal quarter.

The donations we receive between July 4 and September 25, 2016 will contribute to Burnaby Food First projects. Every little bit helps!

To receive updates on our projects and upcoming community workshops, check back often or subscribe to our email list.
