At Whole Foods Wednesday, the money in your pocket will go much further than what's in your basket - it will support education in Charlottesville.

Five percent of all sales will benefit City Schoolyard Garden. City Schoolyard Garden maintains organic gardens for classroom instruction at seven Charlottesville schools.

Proceeds will help provide plants, seeds, and supplies.

"We really feel like we're in partnership with our Charlottesville community. And anytime we can take an opportunity to not just connect with nonprofit organizations that do such great work but also connect our customers to those organizations," said Kristen Rabourdin, Whole Foods marketing team leader.

Whole Foods is open until 10 p.m.
