What John's Up To

Whole Foods Annual Gathering 2024

May 25, 2024

This month I attended the Whole Foods Annual Gathering and was inducted into the Whole Foods Hall of Fame. I knew I was going to be honored at the event, but I could not have imagined how deep the honor would be and how much incredible love would come my way! This truly was one of the very best and deepest honors I have ever received, and I am very grateful.

Jason Buechel – your speech was simply unbelievable! You are an excellent public speaker—brilliant, articulate, confident, and positive. Thank you so very much for what you said about me. I’m so very happy that you are the CEO of Whole Foods, and I think you are doing a fantastic job! 

Beyond the magnificent honor and love that the Whole Foods team gave to me so generously, the best gift of all was how strong the Whole Foods Culture of excellence and love showed up. It was very clear to me that the current leadership is not only maintaining the rich culture but expanding it and developing it even deeper. 27,000 Culture Champions currently working for the company. Wow! 

Appreciations to Jason and the Whole Foods team for an unforgettable evening. Thank you for all that you are doing to help Whole Foods grow and flourish today and in the future. 💚
