Whole Food celebrates one year

Local News

This Thursday marks one year since Whole Foods opened their doors in Lafayette and to celebrate they’re hosting week long activities free to the public to show their appreciation.

Whole Food’s Mallory Broussard says it’s important hey give back to the community that has been supportive, and did so today by joining forces with Project Front Yard to help raise money for the “Whole Kids” foundation.

“Most of our events throughout the week are partnering with our nonprofit partners and friends.” said Broussard.

“Today we are working with Project Front Yard and we are having a rummage sale to benefit our ‘Whole Kids’ foundation.”

“The program lets us put gardens in schools and salad bars in schools. So we teach the educators in schools on how to use those tools and teach kids how to eat healthier and live healthier lifestyles.”

Free events to the public will continue throughout the week with hidden anniversary gifts throughout the store for customers to find, cake cutting on Thursday to celebrate one year in Lafayette as wells as partnering with FoodNet Greater Acadiana Food Bank.

Events will wrap up Friday with Louisiana suppliers demonstrating and sampling their delicious fare from 3-6pm.
