Whole Foods Market® Celebrates Grand Reopening at 91st & Metcalf Grocer celebrates the Holidays with Grand Reopening and Food Drive

OVERLAND PARK, KS. (Nov.8, 2012) – Whole Foods Market, Metcalf will celebrate the start of the holiday season by hosting a free Grand Re-Opening Taste of the Holidays event from 5-8pm tonight.

Whole Foods Market Metcalf began remodeling this past spring after celebrating 10 years in Overland Park, KS. The grocery store completed its remodeling this month with the installation of a new coffee bar and updated café to enhance shoppers’ grocery experience. The Grand Re-Opening Taste of the Holidays is a formal holiday food sampling open to the public and designed to inspire shoppers with unique holiday recipes, cooking tips, ways to save and simple holiday meal planning. The Shawnee Mission South High School Orchestra will play live music at the event in support of the local community and the Grab & Give Food Donation Program.

The Whole Foods Market Grab & Give food drive began as a community effort to help ensure that local families in need have access to healthy meals. Customers can purchase a pre-packaged meal designed to feed a family of four at the Whole Foods Market on 91st & Metcalf registers. All food from Whole Foods Market, including the donated food, is free from artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, and hydrogenated fats. The foods collected are being donated to the Shawnee Mission School District to help feed students and the community at large.

And though the Grab and Give program officially ends on Jan. 1, the giving continues as the Shawnee Mission Educational Foundation will receive a monetary donation from the difference between the food costs and the money raised to continue providing students with nutritional assistance.
