"spent half a decade volunteering". Take it you meant century?

Like it or not, Whole Foods gets their donation money from your paying inflated prices for theirRead More overpriced merchandise. They get the tax write off, you don'! You become an involuntary donor to their favorite charities and the free publicity that comes with it. Stop falling for their "healthy" eating scam! Their junk has just as much trans fat, sugar and high sodium as the mainstream food retailers. Trendy organic health food freaks who have money to burn can shop there to all they want. You can live just as healthy with traditional foods. There's no credible proof that you will live longer or healthier by eating organically grown foods. Shop mainline grocers and donate to your local food pantry where YOU get the charitable contribution deduction not "Big Food"!
