Whole Foods Holds Pantry Contest

AUSTIN, Texas — Whole Foods Market is offering shoppers a chance to start 2012 off with a year’s supply of free pantry staples.

Through the contest, Whole Foods is continuing its efforts to reach out to both health- and cost-conscious consumers. The contest announcement includes a downloadable list of 18 pantry staples that can be bought together for approximately $50 as well as 14 recipes that can be prepared with the staples, such as Simple Black Bean Soup and Almond Brown Rice Pudding.

Thirty-one contest winners will receive a $50 gift card and the list of staples. Five winners will receive a $599 gift card for a year’s worth of pantry staples as well as a customized elfa pantry system from the Container Store.

To participate in the contest, Whole Foods asked shoppers to email [email protected] by Jan. 31 and describe their healthy pantry “must haves.”
