See You at Whole Foods!

Summertime in Charlottesville means there's no shortage of things to do on a Friday night, but we've got an idea that you might want to try.  Starting this Friday, June 4, and continuing on every Friday throughout the month, join us at the Charlottesville Whole Foods from 5-7pm for $5@5!  For a $5 donation (which goes directly to Local Food Hub) you'll get to sample free food and wine throughout the store.  And, you'll be supporting your local non-profit organization, too!

While we love the opportunity to meet more people and spread the word, this program is also a great (and important!) way for all of us to show big businesses in our community that local food matters.  Speak with your dollars (and fill out a comment card...or two), and show these stores that you support small farms and that you are paying attention!  Don't be afraid to ask questions about where your food comes from -- you deserve to know.

When you buy Local Food Hub produce, you can be sure that the food is grown by small, family farmers within 60 miles of Charlottesville.  If that's not local, then I don't know what is!

So don't forget to join us on a Friday in June, and keep your eyes peeled for our fruits and veggies, soon to come on the shelves of Whole Foods!
