Here’s the food related, money saving tips of the week:
The Utah Food Co-op!
It is “a project of the Crossroads Urban Center, in Salt Lake City, The Community Food Co–op of Utah is a “self–sustaining food purchasing network along the Wasatch Front that brings people together for food, savings, and community.”
“It’s a Simple Idea – Really – provide quality, healthy food at a substantial savings through cooperative purchasing; and build a sense of community by bringing people together and promoting volunteer service. The Community Food Co–op is for EVERYONE. Whether you are struggling to meet your basic food needs or are just looking for a way to share in community, you can be part of this simple exchange: giving and receiving.”
Save loads of money on groceries by placing an order once a month for meats, fruits, veggies, Stoneground bakery bread, and huge savings on Nutty Guys nuts/dried fruits, Colosimo’s Sausage, Farnsworth Farms cider and fair trade hot beverages.

The order for this month is due this friday, February 6. If you miss it, no worries, try again next month!
For those of you who aren’t Utahns, check the Slow Food USA website for similar programs in your area. Slow Food is an international program with chapters in different cities around the country. It is loaded with information on local vendors, eco-friendly establishments, organic foods farmers and suppliers, etc. Here’s the link: http://www.slowfoodusa.org/
