Protest at Whole Foods in Palo Alto: Boycott Eden Foods
Sat Jul 26 2014
Eden Foods Wants to Stop Covering Birth Control for Its Employees
On July 19, the Raging Grannies passed out flyers in front of the Palo Alto Whole Foods store, telling customers why they should boycott Eden Foods, a company that is suing the Obama administration for exemptions to the Affordable Care Act. Eden Foods owner Michael Potter wants to stop covering birth control of all kinds, including pregnancy counseling, for his employees. The Grannies sang their message as well, calling out Whole Foods CEO John Mackey, who has also publicly campaigned against the Affordable Care Act.

Raging Grannies Action League writes: "Whole Foods carries 2,000 Eden Foods products. The owners of Eden Foods are Catholic and, according to The Daily Beast, they don’t just want to stop covering some contraception, they want to stop covering all of it. At the same time, many women who are Whole Foods shoppers are opposed to the 'Hobby Lobby' Supreme Court decision; Eden's case, which is even more far-reaching, is soon to be heard."
