Recently, we added something special to our stores, just for kids: a free piece of fruit, kid-tested recipes, and the opportunity to “Ask a Farmer” a question. The free fruit program encourages healthy eating choices.
In alignment with the seventh co-operative principle—Concern for the Community—the Co-op makes community giving part of its annual budget. A few projects that exemplify this are the Farm Fund, The Real Food Show, and Community Shopping Days.
Our co-op is increasing access to local, healthy, fresh food in Whatcom County with the Fresh Bucks program that matches the purchase of fresh EBT-eligible produce for SNAP participants.
One of the first and last people you probably see when you visit the Co-op is someone who works on the team that we call the Front End.
Have you heard about the Co-op’s successful new outreach program for elementary school children in Whatcom County?
strengthens our ability to reach our goals for sustainability, supporting local suppliers, providing good local jobs, and serving our community
The Community Food Co-op is honored to award Ellen Murphy the 2014 Community Cooperator award for her years of community service.
