Dear David,

First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to forward the information you did. The mission of Whole Foods Market is to provide the highest quality natural and organic products available and to appeal to customers who are interested in the benefits to be derived from consuming high quality food regardless of their political persuasion, religious beliefs or their position on controversial issues.

Whole Foods Marketís donation policy allows our stores the freedom to choose the organizations they support. We do not call out any specific organizations by name as to who our stores can or cannot donate to. In this case, local public radio station KPFK made a donation request and received 1 case of 365 Cereal Bars (total value: $24.00) for volunteers of a station membership drive. We do not advertise on the station.

We thank you for your comments and hope you will continue to support Whole Foods Market because of our commitment to bringing you the most healthful natural foods available.

Best regards,

Debbie Hounanian
Regional Customer Information Manager
Whole Foods Market-Southern Pacific Region
