Eating your greens means giving some green at Whole Foods Market locations at Kahala, Kailua and Kahului on Sunday, Sept. 9.
For every pound of salad purchased on Sunday, Whole Foods Market will be donating $1 to the Whole Kids Foundation and its annual Let's Move Salad Bars to Schools fundraiser in September. Money raised from the one-day event helps put salad bars in local schools, including four on Oahu (Kainalu Elementary, Ke Kula ‘O Samuel M. Kamakau, Makaha Elementary and Waikiki Elementary.
The project's goal is to provide 6,000 school salad bars across the nation by 2013.
Other events to raise funds for the Whole Kids Foundation will be taking place until Sept. 23, including a fundraiser from 5 to 7 pm. tonight (Thursday, Sept. 6) at Fighting Eel in Kailua. For a $5 fee, enjoy wine, pupus and a 10-percent discount.
Then tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 7), Whole Foods Kailua is holding its Kiss-A-Fish fundraising event from 4 to 6 p.m.. Seafood team leader Chris Pearson will kiss a whole fish (the bigger, the better) for every donation of $1 or more to the Whole Kids Foundation.
Shoppers can also make donations at checkout (add a donation to your total bill), put change in a cute little kettle, or simply give the 10-cents credit for each bag you bring in to shop with. Or make a donation online at www.wholekidsfoundation.org.
