The mega natural foods store hopes to help children eat better by donating salad bars to 57 New York City public schools.

Whole Foods Market has recently announced plans to donate salad bars to 57 New York City public schools. Whole Foods hopes that the salad bars, which cost the chain $300,000, will bring about healthier eating amongst young students. This donation is part of a citywide plan to install salad bars in all public schools over the next three years. During the announcement, which took place at the latest Whole Foods opening in the Big Apple, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, “Giving every student access to healthy fruit and vegetables is the next step in countering the obesity epidemic and getting kids started on a healthy habit for life.”
