NAPLES, Fla. - Nutritious and delicious.
Whole Foods partnered with the Healthy Kids Collation of Collier County to give out 300 healthy brown bag lunches for students getting ready to go back to school.
"It helps get kids starting to eat healthy foods right away so they get a taste for the fruit and the vegetable to help get the school year off started right," Jessica Varnes, Marketing Team Leader for the Whole Foods in Naples, said.
Whole Foods showed food can be both healthy and tasty, which made both the parents and the kids happy.
Bridget Foster brought her great grandson Benjamin to the store to pick up his free lunch.
"We try and eat organic and we think it's great that they encourage the children by giving out healthy lunches and he loves to come to Whole Foods. It's one of his favorite things," Foster said.
Whole Foods said an event like this helps showcase their message.
"It speaks to one of our core values which is helping the community and the environment and to another one of our core values which is healthy eating education," Varnes said.
