PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. – On Wednesday, April 6, 2016, all Whole Foods Market Palm Beach County stores will donate five percent of the day’s net sales to fund the Florida Backyard Beekeepers Association – an organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of honey bees and their keepers.

In honor of Earth Month, all Whole Foods Market Palm Beach County locations (West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Wellington and Boca Raton) will support the local efforts of our South Florida Beekeepers. The Palm Beach metro 5 percent day will help fund the Hive Giveaway program and Swarm Mapping Project in addition to hands-on workshops for novice & skilled beekeepers and educational children’s workshops.

“We are honored to assist a local organization in Palm Beach County that is protecting our pollinators,” said Brenna Bertram, Whole Foods Market Marketing Field Associate. “Without the honeybee, many of our country’s favorite crops would not exist- pollinators are responsible for 1 out of 3 bites of food we eat, without the honeybee, grocery stores would look very different.” 

On Wednesday, April 6, 2016 members from the Florida Backyard Beekeepers Association will be on-site at each of the Palm Beach Whole Foods locations with information to share with shoppers. The partnership is part of Whole Foods Market’s 5 Percent Day, in which stores donate 5 percent of their day’s net sales to a local educational or nonprofit organization.

Additionally, all Whole Foods Market Palm Beach locations will be hosting a Party for the Pollinators Block Party during the 5% Community Giving Day from 5pm to 7pm at all Palm Beach County locations. This FREE storewide sampling will feature products and dishes that would not be available if it weren’t for honeybees! Learn more: wfm.com/pollinators
