After a long and dreary spring, many of us are excited to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. Live in the spirit of Seward Co-op’s Ends Statement—positive environmental impacts—by leaving outdoor areas better than you found them. There’s no better time than now to pack up some goodies for a picnic, camping, a bike adventure, or hike. Here are a few ideas to inspire you to get outdoors with small-scale, local, cooperative, sustainable, and inclusive Community Foods producers!
Skip the plastic wrap on your next trip! Stasher reusable silicone bags come in many sizes to accommodate a variety of snacks on the go. Stasher bags are durable, flexible, and designed to stand the test of time. And they do more than carry snacks, get creative! You can use silicone Stasher bags to keep electronics dry while hiking or camping, organize clothing, or collect litter on trails.
Red Table Meat Co.
If your outdoor adventure is not too far away, throw a salumi in your bag for a meaty treat. Red Table Meat Co. founder, Mike Phillips (he/him), grew up and worked on farms in his formative years where he witnessed the struggles and tireless work of local farmers. Today, he still works with small-scale, local farmers to bring us some of the best and thoughtfully-crafted cured pork products.
