Whole Foods 5% Day Raises Funds for Our Program

An in-store cooking demo by Carnesha and Whole Foods culinary staff

The results are in! Drumroll please…


New Orleans area Whole Foods stores selected Grow Dat to receive 5% of their sales on Wednesday, August 8. We are thrilled to learn that our share of this 5% is $10,200!

Grow Dat youth employees took over the aisles of the store to show shoppers how to make a delicious strawberry and pecan quinoa salad. Youth answered questions about the program and shared their stories as graduates from the 20-week job skills training program.

Thank you to Whole Foods for your continued support of our work, and thank you to everyone who came out for Grow Dat!
