Holiday Scavenger Hunt at Whole Foods

Whole Foods Market serves up great tastes for the holidays!

I participated in a Media Holiday Scavenger Hunt last week that saw all of us, me included running all over the Whole Foods Cambie store with our green basket to get the items from our personalized shopping list before the others, it seems most cheated by asking members of the staff for help. The winner (who wasn’t me) became the spokesperson donating food from Whole Foods to the Vancouver Food Bank charity. This event was lots of fun and most of all it benefited the charity.

Get ready for all your holiday gatherings with delicious and nutritious delicacies from Whole Foods Market. Whether you plan to build your Christmas feast from scratch or “borrow” the culinary talents of our specialty chefs, Whole Foods Market has everything you need for the upcoming season.
