I was so excited to see plantains at the co-op a couple of
weeks ago because I finally got the chance to try out this recipe from The
Kitchenista Diaries for plantains stuffed with black beans and cheese.
One of my favorite things about shopping at the co-op is the
high quality seasonal produce. These plantains were grown in Mexico and sold
through Organics Unlimited, an organization known for its strong commitment to
social responsibility. Their Giving
Resources and Opportunities to Workers (GROW) program helps provide clean
drinking water and educational, dental and vision services for farm workers and
Jen’s Little Pies are delicious, delectable little treats that we’ll start selling Saturday March 23rd for $6 each. These apple, blueberry, and coconut pies are made with organic ingredients available at the co-op, except for the organic wild blueberries that are not available in the store.
The Lefferts Community Food Co-op needs help to become financially stable, add more products, and improve their store. Please support their efforts by donating or sharing their campaign with your network. We need more co-ops, not less!
One of our newest products is Lavva yogurt. It’s a delicious vegan and gluten-free yogurt made with coconut, lime, plantain, cassava, and the southeast Asian Pili nut. See the Lavva website for more information.
Greene Hill Food Co-op recently lost their lease and needs to relocate. They’re running an IndieGoGo campaign to raise $30k to underwrite increased rent and moving costs. Please support their efforts by sharing or donating if you can.
