5 Reasons to Love Amaranth Whole Foods

Posted on July 16, 2015

You may have already heard that this Sunday, July 19th, Amaranth Whole Foods will be hosting a fundraising BBQ for us in the parking lot of their Arbour Lake store. We would love to see you there, between noon to 3 pm, to enjoy some delicious hot dogs and community spirit with us! Funds raised will be going towards all our locally based eco-programs.

Amaranth has been a long time supporter and member of Green Calgary and we wanted to take this opportunity, seeing as it's their 20th anniversary, to share 5 great reasons to love them! 

1.They are committed to sustainable, local, and organic whole food options. Founded by an Albertan and still proudly locally owned, they pride themselves on being knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly to their customers and to the planet. Learn more about their story.

2. Each week, Amaranth sponsors a #meatlessmonday recipe that we share via social media.  Check out their blog for more delicious recipes and nutritional health advice!

3. A proud sponsor of our Green Tea (in home consult) program, they provide vouchers for participants to try out their whole foods and other products.

4. They are committed to their local community. Did you know they offer school presentations to promote kids food education, and host fundraising events for other youth and community organizations?

5. They have 3 locations in Calgary now; great gluten free options that are clearly identified; and their customer appreciation day offers you 20% off the 1st Wed of the month!

We're glad to have such a valued community partner promoting sustainable food options, environmental conciousness and Green Calgary. Thank you Amaranth!
