Moscow Food Co-op raises discount for low-income families
The Moscow Food Co-op has raised its FLOWER discount from 10 percent to 20 percent.
FLOWER is an acronym that stands for Fresh, Local, Organic and Within Everyone’s Reach. The program was designed to increase access to healthful, local, and sustainable food for community members affected by food insecurity.
Qualifying families on the Palouse can now receive 20 percent off their total at the Moscow Food Co-op every time they shop. The Moscow Food Co-op also provides free educational resources for FLOWER participants, such as the Healthy Eating on a Budget class series, and digital access to the Good and Cheap cookbook written by Leanne Brown.
More information and educational resources can be found online at www.moscowfood.coop/ways-to-save/.
Potential FLOWER participants who are not Co-op owners will receive a $10 gift card to reimburse the cost of a one-year Co-op ownership.
