This is the real goodness. The Delridge Produce Cooperative is a brand new venture that’s just starting to take off. The basic premise: some neighborhoods get the very short end of the stick when it comes to food options – especially of the healthy and affordable variety. Delridge, in Southwest Seattle, is one of those neighborhoods. And so a group of folks are doing something about it – starting a fruit and vegetable co-op. Boom.
It’s awesome for a couple reasons: Firstly it’s boiling up from the community, which is important. Secondly, it’s a co-op in the original sense 0f the word – providing more affordable access to items that are often out of a price range. And thirdly – well, thirdly we just think it’s a cool idea, and its great to see smart folks putting good ideas into practice. Good on ya.
