Oklahoma Food Cooperative again available for people in Enid


Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — It was good to hear Oklahoma Food Cooperative has started up its service in Enid again.

The organization markets and delivers wholesome, Oklahoma-grown organic and natural foods to members.

It had stopped making deliveries here two years ago because of transportation issues.

Those issues are resolved, and local people now can again receive food items.

How it works is, people pay a one-time fee of $51.75 to join Oklahoma Food Cooperative.

Then, they go to the organization’s website, www.oklahomafood.coop, and place orders by the second Thursday of the month.

Food is delivered the third Thursday at University Place Christian Church, 2107 E. Broadway.

The co-op markets only organic and natural, Oklahoma-grown foods.

Other made-in-Oklahoma items, such as apparel, fiber art and baby care products, also are available.

The co-op delivers to 51 pick-up sites statewide.

Oklahoma Food Cooperative was the first food co-op in the nation to focus on local food.

It currently offers more than 4,800 products grown or made by more than 80 Oklahoma producers.

The co-op sounds like a great way to for families to get some good food at a good price.

We’d encourage anyone who can to participate.
