Looking for Earth-friendly and kid-friendly foods to stock up on for Back to School? Look no further! The Co-op has lots of lunch and snack staples kids love, natural remedies for those inevitable coughs and sneezes, and school supplies like pencils, notebooks, and more.
And you can always order in bulk! Central Co-op owners receive a 10% discount on full cases, and you can order cases of anything we carry--and even some stuff we don't carry. Grocery manager Tim Z. has some helpful tips on bulk ordering.
The Co-op stocks peanut butter, nut butters, and sunflower seed butter (like SunButter, $6.49 - $9.99) on Aisle 2. And you can grind your own peanut butter, honey-roasted peanut butter, and almond butter in our Bulk department.
Crofter's ($3.99 - $5.69) is made with Fair Trade cane sugar. The Co-op carries a rainbow of organic and natural fruit spreads.
You wouldn't know it, but these tasty chips get a protein boost from cricket flour! Crickets are a sustainable food, requiring a fraction of the resources raise compared with other sources of animal protein, and contain other nutrients to boot.
The Co-op carries lots of healthy chip options, like the Chirps ($3.99) and also non-crickety Terra Chips Sweets and Beets ($3.69).
Find lots of dried fruit, both prepackaged and in bins, in our Bulk department. (Made in Nature dried fruits: $5.49 - $5.99)
Keep those bugs at bay! The Co-op carries natural hand sanitizers plus lots of natural vitamins, supplements, and remedies for kids and adults.
Keep your kids hydrated at lunch, soccer practice, on the trail and more with Kid-sized Klean Kanteens ($16.99)! Grab the insulated versions for soup or tea on a cold day ($24.99)!
These food storage containers are also BPA-free! We have lots of cute insulated lunch bags in stock to keep your kids' lunch fresh.
We are also so excited about these stylish Decomposition Books. With fun designs, like this outer-space motif (picture below) and bicycles, bees and music, kids and adults alike will find inspiration and delight in these books - perfect for school, OR work! Available in spiral or bound ($6.99 - $7.99)
