Very Good Things Are Happening at Food Conspiracy Co-op (With Special Animated Veggie Action!)

Posted By on Tue, May 1, 2012 at 4:00 PM

The only thing that's stopped Food Conspiracy Co-op at 12 N. Fourth Ave. from expanding the numerous local, organic and otherwise interesting and/or healthy items it sells is a bit more room. But that's starting to change thanks to an expansion that kicked off recently.

Coley Ward, who handles marketing for the co-op, says the store recently moved its administrative offices to a new commercial kitchen space nearby. This has made room for what will soon be a salad bar, a hot-food line and a cooler that will be stocked with local meats and cheeses.

You can check out all of this at an open house tomorrow, Wednesday, May 2, at 5 p.m. There will be a tour of the new kitchen facilities, a screening of a movie about genetically modified organisms and a chance to talk with representatives from Local Roots Aquaponics and Forever Yong Farm.

You'll also be able to gather some information about upcoming events. Ward mentioned a garlic-harvesting event and a tour of Local Roots' facilities. And Tucson's local-food community swooned ...

In other news, the co-op will be offering 10 percent off locally grown food every Wednesday for the next couple of weeks as part of its Eat Local Challenge. Also: The co-op's mascots, those adorable veggies with fists raised high, have finally been animated. See the animation and vote it in as a winner in the My Co-op Rocks video contest here.
