Support a Local Food Co-Op
You may know all about Food Co-Operatives, but in case you don't - you'll want to check this out. I didn't really understand how they work.
I want to tell you about one that I support that operates all over the Phoenix area. It is called Bountiful Baskets (www.bountifulbaskets.org). If you visit their web site, you'll know everything there is to know.
But here is the condensed version - for $16.50, you get approximately $50 of fresh produce. Pretty cool.
Just look at the photograph - that's a lot of produce we picked up Saturday for $16 bucks. I ordered it on Wednesday evening via their web site, on Saturday I left the house at 7:55 a.m., I picked it up at 8:00 a.m., and I was home at 8:05 a.m. Pretty cool.
If you'd like your food dollars to go further, if you know someone else who wants their food dollars to go further or if you want to volunteer with this organization - or all of the above, please visit their web site. It really is pretty cool!
