Q: What will I get in my Bins each Co-op?
A: You will get a variety of seasonal veggies/fruits – whatever I can get in order to make the most of our money. The variety will change from week to week.
Q: What if you get food that I don’t Like?
A : On a week to week basis, I try to avoid “extreme Veggies and Fruits” (Artichokes, Okra, Eggplant, pomegranates for example). I do buy these things occasionally, but usually as an about once every few months. I purchase all food from the farmers markets off of Hillsborough Ave, Tampa.
Q: Can I choose what I get in my bin?
A: I will poll for likes and dislikes, and the majority wins out. I will tweak it week by week. If you are allergic to something, or just really don’t like something, you can trade that item for something else. Remember – the point is to try new things you normally would not be getting, and to have variety in what you’re are eating – it’s healthier!
Q: I love to Juice…can I get extra Juicing Items?
A: If you are juicing, or have need of something extra, let me know and I’ll see if I can work it out, ok?
Q: What about the Holidays?
A: Around the Holidays, I’ll poll for what you’d like and get what you need. Also, during holidays, the co-op days may change, or we may skip depending on what works for the majority.
Q: Who does all the work every week? Do you ever need help?
A: My husband and I do – with our sons when they are home! I may occasionally ask for help with the sorting, so that you can see how it is done, or in the event of illness. I will do my best to have a backup plan for when I am down, or I need to be with my kids for whatever reason. That being said, We will occasionally take breaks for vacation or emergencies. You’ll have as much notice as possible so that you won’t be left in a bind. I know you count on this, too!
Q: I want to join, but I can’t make the pick-up time!
A: Can you find a few friends in your neighborhood that could pick up for you , and join as a group! You can carpool and pick each others produce up!
Let me know if you have any other questions I can address! Thank you!
