Waukesha Montessori, Prairie Hill Waldorf and Tamarack Waldorf Schools to Receive Portion of Days’ Sales

Waukesha, Wis. (January 20, 2010) – In honor of its five year anniversary, Good Harvest Market is donating 5% of all sales on Monday and Tuesday, January 25th & 26th to three local schools, Waukesha Montessori, Prairie Hill Waldorf, and Tamarack Waldorf School in Milwaukee. Good Harvest is also rolling back prices with a 10% discount on all of its products on those two days, giving customers the option of donating all or a portion of their savings to the three schools.

“We have a large number of customers with children who attend or have attended these schools, all of which incorporate sustainability in their curriculum,” said Jody Nolan, store owner. “Running a small private school can be as financially challenging as running a small business and Good Harvest is happy to donate a portion of our sales to these three schools. The money we raise for them will be used towards their tuition assistance for families who have had financial problems in these difficult times.”

In addition to more than 2000 gluten free options and thousands of organic items – including wine and beer, Good Harvest Market offers locally grown foods, sustainably harvested foods and fairly traded products. Strict standards are implemented that are above and beyond other stores: No products they carry have partially hydrogenated oils, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, added MSG, bleach or sodium nitrates. They offer the only organic salad bar in the area, as well as two organic soups each day. The tastiest store secret is the salmon spread, which some have touted as delicious enough to ‘beat the band’ – and healthy to boot!

Since 2005, Good Harvest Market has improved the health of local community members by offering the largest selection of organic products in the area, educating area residents about better choices in their food and overall health and reducing its carbon footprint by offering as many local products as possible. A portion of their sales goes to local causes and organizations. GHM has two locations: 1850 Meadow Lane, Pewaukee, just south of I- 94 off Exit #293 in Waukesha Co., (store hours 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday) and in Milwaukee’s Third Ward at 346 N.
