Now that summer has ended, it is time to consider lunch ideas for your kids to take to school. Come learn how to create healthy and budget-friendly lunches that your kids will love. We will discuss recommended eating patterns, the importance of color and texture, and tips on how to include more fruits, veggies, and whole grains in their lunches. In this fun and hands-on class, participants will be able to create and sample lunch ideas and learn how to prep food ahead of time for quick packing in the mornings. Recipes and tip sheets will be provided for participants to take home. Presented by Morgan Martindell, SNAP-Ed Agent of Virginia Cooperative Extension. Register online or in-store.
Ownership means sustaining and growing what we have built. I’m proud to be a co-op owner.

I love stopping by the co-op for lunch. Some days I mix-and-match the hot bar with the salad bar, other days I grab a Turkey Chipotle Wrap. Either way, it’s always great and I’m able to grab a fresh cup of organic coffee to go. – Mike Miriello
We were enthusiastic about the co-op from the beginning. The co-op sells local food, it is downtown, and there are a lot of healthy food options. I just love everything about the Friendly City Food Co-op. - Sherwyn, Owner for 5 years
