In her letter to city councilors, Derba said each Whole Foods Market gives 5 percent of its net profits to local communities. She said each store has a community liaison who helps the company support local nonprofits, organizations and schools in the neighborhoods around their store.

“We even offer programs that put salad bars and gardens into schools to get kids on the path to healthy eating,” Derba wrote.

Whole Foods Market, which sells natural and organic food, has 367 stores across the country. There are 28 in Massachusetts, including in Swampscott and Lynnfield.
