Event Details

Calling all kids and families... Role Models Wanted!  We invite you to join Whole Foods Market for a fun-filled volunteer project at Grow Dat Youth Farm.  

We're excited to roll up our sleeves and help prepare the farm for their next growing season. This will be a family-friendly, 2-hour project with tasks for everyone ages 2 and up!

As an added bonus, Whole Foods Market Veterans will provide a magical build-your-own salad-bar for kids and grown-ups including all the fixins'. Join us in modeling the fun of "eating a rainbow" in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation! 

Below, please find a volunteer job description and a list of items that may be helpful to bring on the day of the project. It's our goal to make your experience fun, uplifting, and kid-friendly. This is an opportunity for customers, team members, and kids to partner together in service for our community.

So please join us for a fun-filled day of service and inspiration as we celebrate healthy communities and healthy eating together.

Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Take care,
Nicole Poirier
