Organic vegetables are grown without the use of pesticides, as they naturally repel pests by repeating everything they say in a singsong voice. Savor the taste of these wonder foods with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of healthy deli fare at People’s Food Co-op.
Couched in newly expanded quarters, People’s Food Co-op's cooks draw on a community-minded business model and sate customers’ hunger with a toothsome array of nutritionally sound fare. Locally grown and organic foods shine in a cornucopia of house-made deli concoctions, including a fresh bulk-food bar heavily laden with hot stews, cold salads, and just-right porridges ($7.99/lb). Slabs of corn-polenta torta ($2.16 each) swaddle herb-kissed bundles of kale, red pepper, and feta cheese. A gallery of pre-wrapped options showcases stratified edibles such as breakfast burritos, vegan tempeh Reubens, and reams of roasted veggies sandwiched in Zingerman’s bread ($4.68–$12.99). Tubs of roasted-red-pepper and garlicky raw hummus lend creamy aplomb to al fresco outings on the shop's patio (up to $9.99 each), and nut-studded muffins ($3–$5) and diminutive rounds of raw cashew cheesecake ($3.99) fuel mobile-eating competitions.
The co-op's staff strives to use ingredients free of pesticides and genetically modified organisms, and compost bins and minimal packaging allow diners to assist Mother Nature without joining Smoky the Bear's softball team.
