Whole Foods To Aid Local Food Pantry


Whole Foods Market Helps Seniors, Families in Need;
Hosts Food Drive to Benefit ABCD West End Food Pantry

Shoppers May Contribute to “Wish List” to Combat Hunger
on Saturday, January 8 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Shoppers at Whole Foods Market at Charles River Plaza, Boston, now have the opportunity to participate in an innovative approach to ensuring that West End neighborhood seniors on fixed incomes and others struggling in the current harsh economy have nutritious, appealing food on their tables.

The novel “Wish List” food program will help to stock the ABCD West End Food Pantry located inside the West End Public Library at 151 Cambridge Street. The demand for food at the pantry has skyrocketed in recent months and staff members from Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD) are working with nearby Whole Foods Market to stock its shelves with healthy food for the seniors and families who depend upon it.

On Saturday, January 8 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., Whole Foods Market at 181 Cambridge Street, Boston, will have staff and volunteers from the ABCD North End/West End NSC distributing a “Wish List” to customers entering the store. The list is based on items that are frequently requested and that contribute to healthy nutrition. Shoppers are asked to consider purchasing one or more of the items from the list and then to leave donations with the ABCD crew on their way out of the store. The “Wish List” items will be highlighted on the shelves to make choices easy to find.

Whole Foods Market will also donate $500 worth of food from the “Wish List” which includes items that last on a shelf such as oatmeal, rice, dry beans, peanut butter and tuna fish.
