From an email:

Please help us double our food stamp and WIC programs at the farmers’ markets for 2012.

On Wednesday December 14th the P St and Georgetown Whole Foods will donate 5% of ALL Sales to double food stamps and WIC at BFM, Mount Pleasant, NoMa, Glover Park and 14&U FM for the 2012 season.

We will then be able to match the value of food stamps and WiC so our low income customers can double their purchasing power for fruits and vegetables.

Please spread the word.. We are trying to raise 20,000 dollars. So we are asking people to do some holiday shopping on Wednesday so that we can double food stamps at markets in 2012.. Everything counts from Amaryllis bulbs to wine, sandwiches to flour and eggs.

Thank you. There will be great chef demos at WF in support of this event: from Blue Duck Tavern, Brasserie Beck , Ris, and PS7. As well as Loulies and Company’s Coming Cooking School.
