SQ1 loves Whole Foods Market!  Have you heard about the WFM Kids Foundation?  Here’s the 411: Whole Kids Foundation’s mission is to support schools and inspire families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. Their ultimate goal is an end to the childhood obesity epidemic. Through partnerships with innovative organizations, schools and educators we work to provide children access to fresh, nutritious meals.  They use their voice to help children and families make healthy food choices for life.

Great cause, right?  The Whole Foods Market Kids Foundation just celebrated their first birthday, and we’ve got our party hats on to celebrate!  Whole Kids Foundation was established in 2011 by Whole Foods Market® , and in just one year, their programs have supported more than one million children and made positive changes in thousands of school gardens, lunchrooms and classrooms throughout the US and Canada.  WOW!

Check out some of WFM Kids Foundation’s impressive accomplishments below:

  • Partnered to establish Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools, which has already funded more than 1,400 kid-sized salad bars.
  • Created the School Garden Grant Program in partnership with FoodCorps, which has awarded grants to nearly 1,000 schools in the US and Canada.
  • Launched a Healthy Teachers Program to provide nutrition and cooking classes for teachers. After conducting successful pilot programs in Austin, Texas and New York City, Whole Kids Foundation is working in partnership with FoodFight to expand this project to more cities.

SQ1 is proud to  part of the Whole Foods Market  “Buy Local initiative”.

Whole Foods Market carries natural and organic products because they believe that food in its purest state — unadulterated by artificial additives, sweeteners, colorings, and preservatives — is the best tasting and most nutritious food available.  That’s why you can find Square One® Organics in two freezer sections at the Whole Foods Market  in Lincoln Park on Kingsbury!
