FOOD! Whole Foods Five After Five

I am late to the Whole Foods bandwagon. My first visit to the Richmond store was only recently, but I was wowed by their hot prepared foods section and their cute, in-house wine bar. They give you a reason to battle Short Pump traffic with their Thursday evening Five After Five series.

I am late to the Whole Foods bandwagon. My first visit to the Richmond store was only recently, but I was wowed by their hot prepared foods section and their cute, in-house wine bar. They give you a reason to battle Short Pump traffic with their Thursday evening Five After Five series. Starting at 5pm, for $10, you can sample five wines and five dishes. Admission includes a souvenir Whole Foods Market wine glass, and if you bring it back the next time, you get $1 off your admission price. Proceeds benefit a different local non-profit organization each month.

May’s proceeds benefit One Voice Chorus, an inter-racial community chorus that performs choral music for the community and provides artistic and educational resources to promote the work of racial reconciliation. Through its music, membership and outreach programs, One Voice works toward healing and racial reconciliation between Americans of African and European descent.

(Full disclosure: I am a member of One Voice Chorus)
