It’s a WHOLE new 2017 Honey Festival, with a WHOLEsome sponsor who has been WHOLEly committed to the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild and the Honey Festival for many years! Get it?! It’s WHOLE FOODS PHILLY!
Whole Foods has helped the Philadelphia Beekeepers with their community programs and we’ve been the recipient of their 5% days!
Their team members are part of the local community and they are passionate about supporting the local causes that are important to their shoppers and neighbors. First off, it’s a given that each store donates food to area food banks and shelters. They have food; they know how to get it to people who need it. Then several times a year, their stores hold community giving days (otherwise known as “5% Days”) where five percent of that day’s net sales are donated to a local nonprofit or educational organization. The groups that benefit from these 5% Days are as varied as the communities themselves. Last but not least, their team members are constantly volunteering their time and expertise to an assortment of local non-profits.
Thanks Whole Foods for all you do to help the Philadelphia Beekeepers and the 8th Annual Honey Festival!!
