Whole Foods: As Free as a Bird, Now!



Meatless Mondays, cookies for a dime and free compact fluorescent light bulbs are just a few of the goings-on at Whole Foods in Green Hills this month. After the jump, a list of promotions, benefits, cooking lessons and--wait for it--the inaugural Name That Cheese game show.

Here's a strategy for today: Stop by the store to get your 10-cent cookie (make mine a Jumble) and pick up a coupon for a free rotisserie chicken redeemable Wednesday, July 8 through Tuesday, July 14. Seriously, free chicken.

If you swing by to claim your chicken on Wednesday, you can also take advantage of 5 Percent Day to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank. Or go on '50s Friday, when the gelato/coffee bar is serving up shakes and floats to a Motown soundtrack. Wouldn't Lynyrd Skynyrd be more appropriate?

Every Monday 4 to 6 p.m.
