‘Local Bites’ events benefit Paso Robles Food Co-Op
Member and ownership drive in full swing
–The Paso Food Co-op has introduced a new event series. “Local Bites” is a brand-new, foodie pop-up gathering designed to recruit new member-owners to the Paso Robles Food Cooperative while simultaneously promoting local businesses. The event provides a fun, community gathering for existing members to reconnect and for potential new members to find out what the co-op is about. Hosted at local businesses, the event celebrates healthy eating and the fine fare available on the Central Coast.
The third Local Bites series, “Locally Healthful” was held March 21, at Acupuncture Center for Health. During the event, local purveyors and health practitioners talked about and sampled their products. Salena of Acupuncture Center for Health, Gina of Gina’s Natural Elements, and Lorann, a doTerra Wellness representative presented. Paso Food Co-op spoke about the upcoming community-owned startup grocery store with a mission to support local producers and provide healthy, low-cost food choices in the North County. New members signed up to support this special store.
On Feb. 26, Paso Robles Food Co-op (PRFC) hosted their second ‘Local Bites’ event with the Studios on the Park. The local arts organization provided their gallery space and guests were greeted with salad, wheat-free bread, hot tea, and local honey. Over 20 guests attended the event representing existing members and those curious about joining.
The next event will be held April 21 at the Wellness Kitchen in Templeton. With over 71 paid members, PRFC is well on its way to becoming a brick and mortar store and expects to raise the full 500 members necessary to start up within the next two years.
