Wheatsville Food Co-op has been supporting Hospice Austin for a number of years through its Community Action program. Every month, Wheatsville donates $1000 to benefit a local nonprofit selected by its 21,000 owners, and also asks shoppers at the register if they’d like to round up their bill. Hospice Austin is privileged to be the recipient of the Community Action month this June. Shoppers can also donate various goods at the collection bins at the entry way of the stores. Last year, Hospice Austin received more than $13,000 from the Co-op has part of its Community Action program.
Wheatsville has also been very generous in donating groceries for our patients in need during this pandemic. They have saved the day on more than one occasion when our food pantry was almost bare. Thank you, Wheatsville, you are an Austin treasure!
