Co-op Updates: Credit/Debit Cards, Gluten-Free Cookies, Best of Northern Nevada, Holland Project’s Yearly Halloween Cover Benefit Show!

No Longer Charging Credit/Debit Card Fee

Due to member request and a decision by our finance committee, your local Food Co-op will no longer be charging a credit card or debit card fee.  

We would still like all of our beloved members to know how much we LOVE cash and checks. Its helps to keep our overhead down and in turn keeps the cost of food more manageable for your co-op.

Homemade Gluten-Free Cookies

For those of you who were unable to make it to the Fall Seedling Sale last Saturday and taste Absolutely Michelle’s local homemade GLUTEN-FREE cookies… no worries, we are now carrying them in the store!  Made with fresh, organic ingredients including her local eggs.  The Chocolate chip Peanut Butter and Lemongrass Thai Cookies are beyond AMAZING!

Best of Northern Nevada: Best Independent Grocery Store

Thank you everyone who voted the Great Basin Community Food Co-op the Best Independent Grocery Store in Northern Nevada! We also took 2nd for best green service, 3rd for best green store and 2nd for best green non-profit… which is funny because we are a Cooperative Association, not a 501c3 non-profit.

Our very own Lattin Farms won 1st place under Best Local Farm!  This month they are hosting their annual corn maze.  This weekend is particularly special because it will take place under a full moon.  See the image of this year’s “Know Your Farmer. Know Your Food” themed maze at the farm.  The image is coming directly from the White House Blog posted after Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan visited the farm and was so impressed!!

Holland Project’s Yearly Halloween Cover Benefit Show

Also this weekend on Saturday night is the Holland Project’s Yearly Halloween Cover benefit Show!  If you don’t already know about Reno’s incredible  All Ages Youth Arts and Music Non Profit we call Holland, now is the time to check it out! Some of our co-op staff members will be participating in this rocking event to help create  music and arts space for youth in Reno.  Hope to see you there 🙂
