  1. Is this food going to be pesticide free and affordable to more than half of the local community who work for minimum wage?

    Angela, almost none (or possibly none) of our local farmers have organic certification; however, we strive to source produce that is pesticide free. We can’t guarantee that this is always the case. Any produce that is not local is sourced from Pfennings in southern Ontario and it is all certified organic – so it should be pesticide free. Unfortunately you have to pay higher prices for organic produce. We try to balance the need to pay farmer’s a fair price for their products and to offer food at an affordable price to our members and customers. Where possible we raise our margins on higher end products so that we can lower them on others – like produce. We have a number of new initiatives that will begin when we move in to our store later this year to address the affordability issue. As it stands, most of our products are cheaper than other local stores – including the larger grocery stores, because we are a not-for-profit organization.
