We were so thrilled to present a giant check—more than $3200—to the Astoria Senior Assistance program. This wonderful local non-profit helps local senior citizens avoid homelessness by providing emergency funds (rent, utility bills, etc.). Our generous shoppers rounded up purchases in January and donated pocket change & reusable bag credits.
Big thanks to Buoy Beer Company for contributing $490! The brewery decided to donate $10 from every case of Astoria IPA sold (the beer they brewed for our grand opening) to our Change for Community program.
This is our biggest single donation to date. It brings our total Change for Community donations close to $30,000 in under two years. Thanks for your support!
Golden milk is a traditional ayurvedic drink that originated from India and has been savored for centuries.
This golden milk powder consisting of turmeric, dates, and herbs, is a convenient and modern spin on a revered ancient drink. Not only does it taste delicious, it also is packed full of nourishment. Golden milk is most well-known for modulating inflammation throughout the body, but it does much more than just that. It also helps support brain function, cardiovascular health, digestive health, healthy blood sugar balance, a healthy immune system, and a healthy mood. Just mix one teaspoon of golden milk powder with a cup of your favorite hot milk and enjoy.
See how to make it and enjoy samples on Saturday February 16 at 11am–1pm with our wellness manager Katie. It’s all part of the fun for owner appreciation week. Co-op owners save up to 20% on a shopping trip. Everyone welcome!
There’s a football event coming up Sunday that’s so big some call it “super” and as far as food holidays go, consumer spending for this day ranks second-only to Thanksgiving. We’d love some of that spending to happen at your local co-op, so whether you like football or you’re just in it for the snacks, we’ve put together a special three-day sales flyer with some fantastic deals on great food (and beer). From 7-layer dip made with all organic produce to Smart Chicken wings roasted to perfection and ready-to-eat in our rotisserie chicken case, our new store is giving us the space to have more offerings than ever before. We hope you enjoy and thank you so much for your support!

It’s a new year and we’ve got a new set of local non-profits we’re raising funds for! They are: Clatsop County Historical Society, Northwest Trails Coalition and Astoria Senior Assistance Program. You can support these awesome local non-profits January-March by donating your reusable bag credits (beans) and pocket change.
Each month, one organization gets a turn being the round-up recipient. In January, it’s Astoria Senior Assistance. This program puts funds directly in the hands of local senior citizens who are in danger of becoming homeless. To help, say “yes” when a cashier asks if you’d like to round-up your purchase total.
Our wellness department contains vitamins, supplement and body care as well as some really cool merchandise that makes great gifts! Katie, our wellness manager came up with a list of items you may be interested in for last minute holiday shopping.
