BEAN OF THE MONTH: Garbanzo Bean PDF Print E-mail

January 2017
by Chris Ellis, Staff Nutritionist 

We are transitioning from the fabulous grains to another bulk item to feature in Food for Thought: the family of wonderful beans or legumes. Being a vegetarian they are an integral part of my diet and I love all of them, but I do have some favorites, of course, and one of them is the amazing chickpea. I love its nutlike taste and texture. I use it in many things but my ultimate favorite uses for chickpeas are in hummus, soups, eating them as-is in salads, or with a tasty olive oil, salt, and pepper.

GM REPORT: Our Role, Our Community PDF Print E-mail

January 2017
by Sabine Rhyne, General Manager

Within hours of the results of the recent election, I found myself focusing on the ways in which our cooperative needed to redouble its efforts, as the community hub that it is. Namely, it became so very clear that our welcoming retail space, though already comfortable to so many, needed to be that in spades.

GM REPORT: How We Doin'? PDF Print E-mail

December 2016
by Sabine Rhyne, General Manager

I mentioned last month that I had been working on a report card, of sorts, of how we have been doing in reaching our Ends, the most global goals for our Co-op set by our board. I mentioned that early analysis was very promising on the price comparison front, and that I was heartened with the work that our buyers had been doing to address prices in our store.
