Schools Benefit from Whole Foods Market “5% Day”

Checks were recently presented to Florence Elementary School and Albert Einstein Academy from their community partner Whole Foods Market Hillcrest.
The presentation was part of the “Healthy Meals, Healthy Kids” Expo event, which encourages healthy school meals through support of reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act and an increase in school meal reimbursement rates.
The funds were provided through the Whole Foods Market 5% Day promotion, earmarked for supporting nutrition education at schools. For more information, please contact Gary Petill, food services director, at
