Planned for your bin Monday, Nov. 20, 2023
REMINDER TO MEMBERS! For the first time since we started the Co-Op 14 years ago we have had to raise the price of a full bin to $60.00. You will be getting $60.00 worth of groceries vs $50.00 – $10.00 more groceries so no worries there. The half bin will go up to $30.00. The wholesaler has raised the $$ for the minimum order. If we go below that amount – even if it is their fault by not shipping everything we ordered – they will charge us an extra $150.00. Since we are a non profit and do not make any $$ on the groceries that we order for you we can not be paying extra charges. Ordering more groceries will give us an extra buffer so we don’t end up paying extra – and will also get you a few more goodies.
This increase took place Sept 25th for Pod A.
The list below is subject to availability and may have substitutions depending on what ships.
Please remember to BRING your BAGS, BOXES, BASKETS, or CONTAINERS for collecting your produce. We will not be keeping boxes for your use in order to keep the co-op room cleaner and help prevent spreading germs.

*Please note, when a bin is extra full one week, it is generally because we order extras due to previous shortages or produce that arrived but was rejected due to spoilages. This does not mean that is the norm for every week. If there are any shortages in a bin in your Pod A one week, that credit will be used to purchase extra for the next Pod A pick-up.
