To celebrate 8 years of serving the Lowcountry, Whole Foods Market Mount Pleasant is hosting a 'Giving Grill' from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 19th.

Whole Foods has chosen GrowFood Carolinaas the recipient of the Giving Grill on this special day, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated directly to their cause. Unfamiliar with the great service that GrowFood Carolina provides? Check out their mission statement below:

GrowFood Carolina’s mission is to help link local farmers to local and regional markets by providing adequate infrastructure and coordination so that fresh produce can move seamlessly from local farmers’ land to consumers’ hands.

GrowFood Carolina provides marketing, warehousing, and distribution functions for local farmers, in addition to liability insurance, regulatory compliance and sales coordination. Providing meaningful opportunities to rural farmers strengthens and secures the future of our regional food supply and ensures that local rural lands remain in agricultural use. The added benefit of reinvigorating our farmers is that you get the freshest and most sustainably farmed produce on the market. When you buy produce with the GrowFood Carolina label on it, you know that you are getting a product that was hand-picked by a local farmer within days of your purchase.

So, come on out to get some grilled local sweet corn from Hudson Family Farm, burgers and more!

Whole Foods Mount Pleasant is located at 923 Houston Northcutt Boulevard.
