Event Details

Calling all kids and families to join us for an end-of-summer volunteer project at the Friendship Trays Demo Garden, in partnership with Friendship Gardens. Friendship Gardens is a network of gardens in the Charlotte area that donates their harvests to Friendship Trays, its local meals-on-wheels program.

We're excited to roll up our sleeves and help prepare the garden for fall. This will be a family-friendly, two-hour project with tasks for everyone ages 4 and up.

Below you'll find a volunteer job description and a list of items that may be helpful to bring on project day. We'll have tasks and games ready for little ones whose attention may wander.

After the project concludes we'll have a build-your-own salad bar with all the fixings for all participants. We'll "eat a rainbow" in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation and in celebration of our hard work, healthy eating and healthy communities.

This is a great opportunity for Whole Foods Market Team Members, customers, members of the community and their families to join together in service. We look forward to seeing you Sept. 14!
