Community Food Co-op

I just joined our local community food co-op. Today was my first food pick up, and I have to say how impressed I was. It is a grass-roots, volunteer, community group that gets together and mass orders food each month to lower the price for all involved. If you are in the area, you should check it out here, or see if there is one in your own community. 

For only $23 I got the following:
1 lb ground beef
2 lbs chicken thighs
1 lb beef ribs
1 lb wild-caught salmon
1 cauliflower
1 head of lettuce
2 green peppers
1 bag baby carrots
2 mangoes
5 peaches
5 nectarines
1 loaf of locally made whole wheat bread
1 lb rice
