This event combines two of our primary objectives in life: helping the planet, and eating like a pig. The contest pits members of the Green Hills Whole Foods' many culinary departments against each other in a store-wide chili-palooza. The likely winner: you the chili-eating machine, who for just a $5 donation can sample every pot and vote for the best. Proceeds benefit the Whole Planet Foundation, which grants micro loans to individuals in countries as far-flung as East Timor, Nicaragua and Ethiopia to create sustainable businesses in their communities. Now if we can just find a way to promote peace in the Middle East with Frito pie.
