Part of SXSW, the two-day event benefitted
Whole Planet Foundation's efforts dedicated to poverty alleviation through microcredit loans in the U.S. and around the world where the company sources products. Together, participating brands helped raise over $35,000, supporting over 1,000 women and their families.
Attendees gathered at the Whole Foods Market flagship store in Austin and got to sample our Macadamia Milk Ice Cream while supporting an incredible cause. The event was a convergence of music, technology, health-conscious gastronomy, connectivity, and social engagement. Check our Instagram Reels below for attendee reactions!
The Whole Foods Market Lamar store is located at 525 N. Lamar Boulevard in Austin, Texas. Admission to the showcase was free and open to all ages with priority to SXSW badge holders.
