Back-To-School Event At Whole Foods Market

For the seventh year, Whole Foods Market Wellington — in partnership with the Village of Wellington, the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office and Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue — will kick off the school year with a huge celebration of lunchbox favorite foods, free ID cards for kids, and children’s activities including face painting and live magic on Saturday, Aug. 15 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Emergency vehicles will be onsite in the Whole Foods Market parking lot for families to explore, while free samples will be offered around the store. Families are encouraged to walk around and taste all sorts of lunch box delights. The free ID cards will be created in the back of the café by PBSO volunteers.

Reusable Whole Foods Market cooler lunch bags and ice cream sundaes will be offered in exchange for donations to the Whole Kids Foundation. There will also be a school supply drive. Guests are encouraged to bring school supplies of their choice, which will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club in Wellington.

Whole Foods Market Wellington is located at 2635 State Road 7. For more info., call (561) 904-4000.
