"Whole Foods employees will present an overview of the store's sprecial features and products; a question and answer session will follow."
We just want to get the word out because the Whole Foods in Santa Cruz is believed to be creating more jobs but only 20% of their hires were local. As well, in order to meet their financial goal of $120,000 a day that is going to have to come from local businesses like Staff of Life, Shopper's Corner, The Buttery, and Tony and Alba (several hundred local workers). Come and express how you feel about what buying local really means. 60% the money from Whole Foods will go out of the area according to graphs from "Buy Local First".
