What’s Up at People’s Food Co-op?

People’s Food Co-op (PFC) is a valuable part of our community. They constantly have fantastic events, promotions, and opportunities available for families.  If you’re familiar with our quarterly series, you’ll know that we highlight all the fun events, promotions, and more that are upcoming at PFC.

While our summer looks a bit different than we’re use to, we are thankful for all the great fun and opportunities available at PFC!

Curbside Pick-up

People’s Food Co-op unveiled a brand new service towards the end of March as everyone was starting to understand the severity of the pandemic.  Now, you can order your groceries online (24/7) through PFC Curbside Pick-up and pick them up Tuesday – Friday.  This is a great way to get the hard to find products that the co-op carries and also support a key player in our community in supporting local producers.  Watch the video below for a quick how-to!
