For the last 6 years our family has participated in our local produce co-op called Bountiful Baskets. It saves us lots of money on our produce and gives us a variety to help us create our meal plan for the week.
I choose to volunteer each week, but as part of the co-op they only ask you volunteer every 6 to 8 times you order. The co-op is not possible with out volunteers. Volunteers arrive an hour before the order pick up time. They upload the truck, check the produce, distribute it evenly into the baskets and assist other members pick up their orders.
Bountiful Baskets is a not-for-profit food co-op for families that want to have more fresh produce for less money. In order to participate, you must set up a free account on the website. It is helpful to upgrade your web browser to the most current version, to ensure the website will function properly for you.
Contributions are accepted beginning Mondays at 9:00 a.m. for Wyoming, 10:00 a.m. for Utah & Montana, and 12:00 p.m. for all other states and end Tuesday at 9:00 p.m.. Making a contribution is sometimes referred to as “ordering”, but this is not accurate. We call it contributing or participating, because Bountiful Baskets is not a business that you buy from, but rather a co-op where we all pool our money to buy things together. Because of that if you forget to pick up your order it is donated to a locate Fire Station or charity.
