This way as people are shopping and need a jar, they can simply borrow one. I often misjudge the correct number/size of jars I need when leaving the house. Deposit should include the cost of replacement and maybe an added charge for cleaning.

Thank you, Tyler Reply Eric Doyle says: October 31, 2018 at 10:39 am Since you carry Hampton Creek Just Mayo, can you look into carrying Hampton Creek Just Egg (scramble). Here is a link to it: http://content.justforall.com/Demand-JustEgg-ticket.pdf Reply Lydian says: October 30, 2018 at 2:06 pm Did you discontinue making the curried tempeh in the “deli” section? It was so good! Reply Mark Flanigan says: October 26, 2018 at 12:26 pm Hello, how are you? My name is Mark Flanigan. I am an AmeriCorps VISTA serving at the Imago Dei middle school here in downtown Tucson. We are a unique 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit. Our students are 100% below the poverty level and the great majority of them are from immigrant, refugee, and Indigenous communities. To help combat hunger and break the cycles of poverty, we recently started a small, modest Food Pantry here at our school. We got some initial food and non-food donations, but are looking to make it more sustainable. Do you happen to have any kind of community outreach program by which you donate food or non-food products to charities like ours here in Tucson? We would love to partner with you, as we are both neighbors here in downtown Tucson and looking to make the world a happier, healthier place for all. Please let me know, if possible. Thank you and have a great weekend! Sincerely, Mark Flanigan AmeriCorps VISTA, Imago Dei Middle School [email protected] Reply Ian says: October 24, 2018 at 1:40 am Hi, I’m not currently an owner but I read an article about a cool program another co-op is doing today, and it might be up your alley: https://www.strongertogether.coop/voices-from-the-field/a-new-approach-from-the-next-generation — Wild Oats Market in Williamstown, MA is doing a program where shoppers can pre-buy additional items (from a set list), which are then reserved in the form of coupons that can be distributed to households in need via existing systems such as local food banks. The hope seems to be personalizing the act of improving food security for those donating, and improving access to high-quality, healthy foods for food-insecure households. Hope you’ll consider something similar!

Reply admin says: August 7, 2018 at 11:07 am Hi Natanya, The Board of Director meetings are always the fourth Wednesdays of the month. The next meeting is Wednesday, August 22 at 6:00pm. Thank you! Reply natanya says: May 8, 2018 at 4:26 am What has happened to the reply to the fresh whole chicken question? I even went to stores and found other places as requested by Kelly providers of whole chickens. We used to sell whole chickens and now we don’t. (no giblets’/wing tips) Why are we escalating to non-whole fresh chickens when they were sold in the past? Why are manufacter’s doing this? Reply admin says: May 8, 2018 at 9:55 am Natanya, We have just found a more direct connection with our distributor that will help us get more regular communication on our orders of whole fresh chickens. We carry Smart chicken so that does not include giblets or wing tips. I think it is a lack of communication from the sales and distribution not a choice by the manufacturer. We use whole Smart chickens in the kitchen also. We process them ourselves for dishes on the hot bar. We often do not get the orders we want through our distributor and we make do with what we have. If you want the whole organic chicken with giblets and wing tips, local is best. Try Top Notz http://topknotfarms.com at local farmers markets or sold at TIME MARKET. Thank you for following up on this question and issue. Have a good day! –Kelly Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
