We’ve officially passed the one year mark of the COVID-19 pandemic. As more community members receive vaccines, it feels to many that we are entering a new phase of the pandemic. We of course won’t be able to go back to “normal” overnight, but we may be able to connect with loved ones differently over upcoming holidays. Sharing food allows us to celebrate the diversity within our community, and learn about cultures and cultural practices outside of our own. Whether you plan to have a celebratory meal for Passover, Easter or will break the fast with Iftar during Ramadan, Seward Co-op offers a variety of options available to enjoy this spring.
Stock up for the season with a Meat Bundle
Holidays can be a great time to cook a traditional holiday meal or try something new. Let our Meat & Seafood staff help you stock up for the season while you support and save on high-quality meats from local, small-scale farms. Meat bundles are packed with a variety of meat cuts that can be used for everyday meals and special occasions. For instance, a lamb bundle sourced from local, sustainable farm the Lamb Shoppe, can provide stew meat for weeknight soups and curries as well as lamb shank for Seder. A seafood bundle, from cooperative and small-scale producer Seafood Producers Co-op, could be a great option to create new recipes or enjoy wild-caught fish over Lent.
Community Foods from our Deli
Co-op staff continue to prepare a number of tasty dishes, with ingredients sourced from Community Foods producers whenever possible. Our Deli has great options to include in your spring celebration menu or to share a holiday meal with loved ones from a distance. Seward-made packaged hot bar dishes are available in the Deli Grab & Go coolers along with salads, desserts and dips.
