Celebrate Earth Day with Sale at Sugar Beet Food Co-op




The Sugar Beet Food Co-op is holding a customer appreciation weekend April 22 and 23 to celebrate Earth Day in Oak Park. Members can receive a 10 percent discount and nonmembers 5 percent off all non-sale items. Shoppers can meet the farmers working to sustainably grow healthy foods, write their “New Earth Year’s Resolution” and post it on the Earth inspiration board or check out a book from the Oak Park Public Library to learn more about composting and reducing their footprint. Sugar Beet will be donating 5 percent of the day’s sales to an organization or program chosen by the community.

        Sugar Beet, the first and only west suburban food co-op, was born in 2015 out of the work of community members, and strives to give back to the community on a daily basis. The idea of a business and its community working interdependently together has been documented as far back as 1769. The current food co-op culture continues to support this ethos, as well as democratic control, education and information sharing for the community and concern for our environment and world.

Location: 812 W. Madison, Oak Park. For more information, call 708-948-7656 or visit SugarBeet.coop. See ad on page 45.
