Granny Friends! JOIN US at Palo Alto Whole Foods Saturday July 19, arrive at 2:15pm.Added to the calendar on Wednesday Jul 16th, 2014 10:45 PM
Grannies will be inside the store, heading outside around 2:15pm to sing pro-choice anti Eden songs in front of the store. We will have flyers.
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.
Our flyers will tell shoppers to boycott Eden products. WHOLE FOODS CEO says they will NOT stop carrying Eden products, so we will be calling him out on it as well.
