Louisiana — The Whole Foods Market Arabella Station, Baton Rouge and Veterans stores are donating five percent of their February 29 net sales to the Brees Dream Foundation’s hunger initiatives.
In 2011, Drew Brees was selected as a National Ambassador against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), which fights hunger in over 70 countries and depends entirely on voluntary donations.
Through his foundation and collaboration with WFP, Brees will work on a variety of projects to address hunger in communities globally.
Funds raised from the February 29 5% Day will go to support these initiatives.
