Happy Halloween!

We love this time of the year. The leaves are golden, the air is crisp, and the pumpkin pies are delicious! Here’s a quick update on what we’ve been doing this October.

Trick or Treat!

Every year at Sole Food, our team participates in the annual Trick or Treating festivities. We get to see the cutest (and scariest) costumes out there: from storybook princesses to chilling goblins. To prove that we’re in the Halloween spirit, our store always participates in dressing up, this year we’re pieces from the game “Clue.” Our sister store, Kid's Club, dressed up as characters from Toy Story!

Spina Bifida

Sole Food and Kids Club has teamed up with the Spina Bifida Association to help raise money for those affected with this birth defect. October is National Spina Bifida Awareness Month. Spina Bifida occurs when the spinal cord doesn’t grow the way it should and thus protrudes outside the body, leading to complications such as paralysis, learning problems, and problems with bladder and bowel control. An estimate of 166,000 people in the United States lives with Spina Bifida. To do our part, Sole Food and Kids Club has sold “Ghosts” for a dollar each. 100% of the donation goes to the Spina Bifida Association, and as of right now our combined pull from both of our stores has raked in over $1500 dollars! Thank you so much for your donations and your support.

Come visit us from 4-6pm today to get your Trick or Treat on! Get some candy, share some laughs, and if you have some extra cash, donate a dollar to those in need. Happy Halloween Sole Foodies, see you soon!
