As January approaches, you may be feeling hopeful for what may come or maybe you are just taking it day by day. However you are feeling is okay—we have all faced many compounding stressors brought on by the pandemic. Navigating the winter months ahead, after already banking many months of shelter-in-place, may seem daunting. Cooking is one way to get through. Time in the kitchen can be a great way to relieve stress and bring comfort. There can be excitement in trying new recipes and learning new ways to nourish yourself and loved ones with food.
The co-op offers more than locally produced goods by small-scale makers. We are also a great place to find ingredients from producers that treat their staff equitably and farm their fields sustainably. No matter the season, our Produce department is brimming with fruits and vegetable sourced from many Community Foods growers year round. Throughout the winter look for the Community Foods logo at the shelf to find produce favorites that not only supports your wellness but also folks who produce our food in alignment with cooperative values.
