Whole Foods Market, the leading natural and organic food retailer, recently inaugurated its Downtown Miami location, catering to the nearby metropolitan area. Now, in an effort to greater serve the community, the store is offering downtown businesses the opportunity to Lunch & Learn with a new program offering FREE healthy cooking presentations at their workplace, hosted by the store’s Healthy Eating Specialist Genesis Defilippi.With Lunch & Learn, employers can help their staff make better choices and lead a healthier, more productive lifestyle through this informative and interactive class on health and well-being.
The hour-long interactive class can be upgraded with a complete healthy lunch for just $7.99 per person (excluding tax). Businesses can order bento boxes to enjoy as Genesis takes the office on a healthy eating journey. Each bento box includes a choice of four items from Prepared Foods, including options of California Quinoa Salad; Garlicky Kale Salad; Carrot Oatmeal Cake Grain Burger; Orange Ginger Beets; Five Spice Butternut Squash; and Sweet & Spicy Pad Thai Kale Salad, among others. Bento box orders must be placed in advance.
Genesis is available to visit any business – Spanish or English speaking – and can tailor the Healthy Eating Presentation to meet specific needs, whether companies want to focus on educating their employees on portion control, foods to keep them energized throughout their work day, or any other health-related topic. Lunch & Learn is available within a five mile radius of the store. A minimum of 10 attendees is required for a Lunch & Learn office presentation.
Each of the lunch options and Genesis’ presentation will follow the guidelines of the Whole Foods Market Health Starts Here; an education program based on simple criteria for everyday eating, no matter what dietary path customers follow. Health Starts Here aligns with the Four Pillars of Healthy Eating – focusing on Whole Foods, Eating Plant-Strong, Choosing Healthy Fats and Considering Nutrient Density.
While Lunch & Learn is currently available only in the Downtown Miami location, each Whole Foods Market location has an in-store Healthy Eating Specialist to educate customers about the Health Starts Here program, suggest healthy recipes, help with good-for-you meal plans and much more.
Whole Foods Market – Downtown Miami is located at 299 SE Third Street, Miami. For more information on Lunch & Learn, contact Genesis at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (305) 995-0600.
