There are so many wonderful projects that are teaching children about nutrition and food. Across the nation people are becoming aware of the great opportunity to teach children how to grow their own vegetables allowing they to gain passion for gardening.
In a recent article, “2011: The Year of the Vegetable; Children can learn to enjoy healthier foods if they grow them with their parents. It’s easier than you think.” By George Ball, comes his note, “We cannot expect children to make the right food choices when healthy foods are out of reach and nutrition-smart role models are not in evidence.”
That’s why we applaud the Children’s Garden Project in Charleston and Whole Foods Market who is donating 5% today, Jan. 11, 2011 to the organization.
The Charleston Area Children’s Garden Project has been selected by Whole Foods Market in Mt. Pleasant as a recipient of 5%-Day, Tuesday, January 11, 2011. 5% of net sales will be donated to the Garden Project.
This would be a great way for you to make a little donation to the Children’s Garden Project while stocking up on some good food. Whole Foods will donate 5% of the net sales on Tuesday to help support us. Overall for the day, that could add up to a nice donation from an unexpect place. The Children’s Garden Project is glad to have been selected by Whole Foods Market to be a recipient of their Community Giving Program.
