Farm Fresh Rhode Island announced that it will receive five percent of net sales from all Whole Foods Market locations in Rhode Island on Thursday, July 26
as part of the company’s quarterly Community Giving Day. The path food travels — the food system — includes everything from growing and harvesting to processing, packaging, transporting, selling, eating, and disposing of food. Farm Fresh Rhode Island’s mission is to grow that system to be sustainable and healthy for both the farmers and eaters in the region. Farm Fresh Rhode Island offers farmers markets and transparent enterprise systems that help New England farmers, fishers, and small food businesses reach more customers. And they work with the community through outreach, incentives, and educational programs to increase the accessibility and affordability of fresh, local foods. More than 465 Whole Foods Market locations will participate in the Community Giving Day by donating to organizations, projects and programs that support the mission of ensuring access to healthy food for all.
