    PFC, Kombucha, and Women's Wellness, oh my!

    Many of our PFC Owners enjoy brewing kombucha at home, including our Community Investment Coordinator, Jess Buttimer.  Jess will be sharing her kombucha brewing tips this week at the Women's Wellness Wednesday event hosted by Orange Theory Glen Ellyn and Glen Ellyn Living Magazine.

    Kombucha is delicious fermented tea with many possible benefits. You have to decide if kombucha is right for you, but Jess likes to use it as a soda/beer/wine replacement and fermented food addition every evening.

    Jessica's favorite resource for all things kombucha is Cultures of Health, where you can find thorough instructions, tips, and links to purchase all you need. But, here are the basics to get you started...

    Sign Now! Bring PFC to Downtown Lombard

    We are thrilled to announce that we are pursuing the development opportunity at 101 - 109 S. Main St. in Lombard. We will soon submit our proposal to the Village of Lombard to secure this location in partnership with a local development firm. Our proposal is in response to the Village's request for proposal (RFP) for the site.

     

    We love this location for its unique history, accessibility, proximity to the downtown corridor, and its ability to deliver on our mission to create a local, sustainable and connected food community. After completing two separate professional market studies and reviewing alternate sites, we also know this location is the best performing option for Prairie Food Co-op.

     

    Please sign your name to our petition of community support. We need our Owners and entire community rallying to make this future home a possibility. Share this link with your family and friends, neighborhood groups, trustees, and favorite local businesses.

     

    Prairie Food Co-op started as a community conversation to bring a cooperatively owned grocery store to DuPage County and has grown into a thriving organization of 750+ owners working together to open a brick-and-mortar marketplace for locally grown food and products. PFC will not only bring quality food to our tables but will provide fair paying jobs, focus on sustainable practices, and drive business within the local economy.  Thank you for your continued support as we begin this exciting chapter in our story!

     

    For more information, we invite you to join our public community gatherings and watch our website and Facebook pages for additional details. To connect with us, email info@prairiefood.coop.

    Order a Yard Sign

    Show your Owner pride with a yard sign and pique the curiosity of your neighbors.

    You can be one short conversation away from recruiting another Owner!

    We would like to see a sign in every yard, so we are gladly giving yard signs to every willing Owner. Each sign costs us about $10 to produce, so please consider making a donation on the next screen to help alleviate the cost to the co-op. However, if you can't pitch in right now, that's OK too. The important thing is helping us spread the Prairie Food word. 

    Enter your address below and we will get a sign to your yard usually within a week!
