Join us this spring as we work toward decreasing our use of plastic in the marketplace by investing in a new produce cooler that has… misting ability! Ever wonder why we have all of our produce in plastic bags at Locavore? Because without misting, it is the only way to keep the produce fresh. We want to ditch that nasty plastic and green up our operation. But a new produce cooler will run us $12K. Yikes!
What We’ve Got…
Our beloved “Bartholomew” donated in 2013 by Expressway Market (thank you Expressway!!!). Lots of plastic.
What We Want…
Misting capability = no plastic needed to keep veggies yummy and fresh!
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Central Oregon Locavore promotes local food and farmers for the health of our community. We work for an ecologically stable and socially just food system in Central Oregon by improving access to fresh, nutrient-dense local food, educating the community about the benefits of sustainably produced food and supporting farmers and ranchers.
What Locavore Does…
Central Oregon Locavore offers eight educational programs to community members, students, farmers, ranchers, and producers.
Locavore provides access to local food year round as Bend’s Only Indoor Farmers Market with community space for gathering.
Along with educating and accessing local food, Locavore also celebrates the season with local farmers, ranchers, and chefs at our many events.
