Offering our customers healthy foods is a touchstone of our success.
We recognize it is essential for all people to have a wide range of foods in their diets so they can access all the nutrients necessary for healthy living. We aim to source as much of this good food locally as possible and work directly with local farmers and locally-owned businesses.
To address these values, we have a Five A Day Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Policy, we fund raise specifically to purchase diverse whole grain products and protein-rich foods, and we encourage donations of healthy foods, specifically nutritious school snacks for children.
Beyond simply giving our customers food, we empower them to stay healthy by offering them recipe sheets, giving out seeds in the spring for customers to garden, and offering food preservation workshops in season.
