Grab a Bite, and Make a Difference

Update: View our Flickr album of the event.

Thank you to the community, our supporters, and partners for shopping at Whole Foods Columbia last Thursday, where 5% of net sales are donated to the Howard Community College Educational Foundation!

The event raised over $4,500, which are matched with Pathway Scholarship funds for a total of over $9,000 for student scholarships! We also collected over 100 full grocery bags of food for the HCC Food Pantry!

Whole Foods Columbia is holding a food drive and community giving day (otherwise known as “5% Days”) on September 15, 2016. On that day, 5% of net sales will be donated to Howard Community College Educational Foundation (HCCEF). Funds raised will go directly to the Pathway Scholarship Match Campaign, helping raise the last $140,000 of the $500,000 matching campaign.

Whole Foods is also partnering with HCCEF to make weekly donations to our campus food pantry and will start the partnership by holding a food drive at Whole Foods the same day. Hunger is a hidden barrier for student success and with the generous support of Whole Foods we can combat food insecurity on campus.

Interested? Here are a few ways you can help!

  • Pick up lunch for yourself, and some friends or coworkers!
  • Stop by for morning coffee
  • Order pizza for the family
  • Buy items for HCC’s food pantry
  • Pick up carryout for dinner on the way home

Whole Foods Market, at 10275 Little Patuxent Parkway, is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Come out, grab a bite, and make a difference for HCC students.

Giving makes a difference! Your support helps students along their pathways to success.
