This Sunday, September 9, Whole Foods Market’s Las Vegas stores are hosting ‘Eat Your Greens to Give Some Green.’  Throughout the day, for every pound of food purchased at the prepared foods department’s hot food and salad bars, Whole Foods Market will donate $1 to the Whole Kids Foundation.

All money raised from this one-day event will help put salad bars in local schools through the work of the Whole Kids Foundation and Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools initiative. This initiative supports First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! efforts to end childhood obesity. To date, Whole Foods Market has helped raise more than $3.7 million dollars toward 1,435 salad bars placed in schools throughout the country.

There are four Whole Foods stores in the Las Vegas Valley taking part in the ‘Eat Your Greens to Give Some Green’ promotion:
