From August 4th to August 10th, New Pioneer Co-op will be supporting the Eat Local Challenge -stop into the Co-op and keep an eye out for the Local sticker shown above; this sticker identifies food that was produced or grown within 250 miles of either Co-op location or within the state of Iowa.
As New Pi explains:
“SIgn up for this self-monitored challenge at either New Pi location and enter to win great prizes from the Co-op and Edible Iowa River Valley magazine. Pick up a sample menu, a local products list, and tips for how you can eat local all throughout the week. Look for the ‘Local’ sticker on local items we carry to help guide you through purchases.”
You can also Eat Local by stopping by the Sycamore Mall Farmers’ Market Tuesday evening or the Iowa City Farmers Market Wednesday evening or Saturday morning. Or, head out to your yard for whatever goodies you’ve been growing.
