Community Food Co-op

We started doing a thing. We’re now participants in the Community Food Co-op of Utah. Their website is here. But their website pretty much sucks and doesn’t do the thing justice, so allow me to explain it to you. Through the Co-op, every two weeks you can fill out an order form and pick up food at various locations all over Utah. This food is good and this food is cheap. Essentially, you’re buying produce, meat, and other foodstuffs straight from the producer, so it’s fresher and cheaper than a grocery store. You don’t have to order every time, and you don’t have to pay a membership fee (though a $10 donation once a year is encouraged– our total price below includes a $5 donation and we plan to pay another $5 on our next order). You’re also encouraged to volunteer your time to the program.

Not convinced of its awesomeness? We got all the stuff you see here: 2 pounds of carrots, 4 apples, 4 mangoes, a small watermelon, 2 bundles of broccoli, a bundle of spinach, a head of red leaf lettuce, 2 pounds of honey, a jar of peanut butter, a package of mushrooms, a package of strawberries, a package of blackberries, 4 pounds of ground beef, 2 pounds chicken breasts, 2 pounds of bacon, and a loaf of honey wheat bread for $52. Yes, it’s true. It’s all unbelievably delicious and all of it is from local producers.

We’re now huge fans of this program, and we’re already planning our next order. It entails some grass-fed, all natural steak. Mmmm.
