If you are planning to take part in the Eat Local, America! campaign, a visit to the Linden Hills Co-op cheese department should be on your list. According to Jason Anderson (aka “The Cheesemonger”), 80-90% of the cheese stocked by the co-op is local.
Before jumping into his current role nearly five years ago, Anderson was like many Americans. His cheese palate was somewhat limited.
Do you know of a local, environmental non-profit that could use some extra cash? Each year, the co-op is able to give $3000 – $4000 to a pair of environmental non-profits chosen by our member-owners. Nominations for our 2013 Green Patch program are due on August 15th. Click to learn more about the Green Patch program and download a nomination form, or stop by our customer service desk for a copy.
Green Patch candidates will be voted upon by the co-op membership during the Annual Meeting.
