The Name Game
We need YOUR help to give our food co-op a catchy, fantastic, awesome, witty, and inspiring name! Lombard Food Co-op is a temporary name and we’d love to get a “real’ name going. Have a suggestion? There are 3 ways to have it heard:

Outpost Natural Food Co-op visit
We visited the Outpost Natural Food Co-op in Milwaukee, WI. Outpost co-op has 4 locations in the Milwaukee area. This is a true one-stop grocery stop, with local beer and wine selections (it IS WI!), including Gluten-free beer; a produce section rivaling Jewel in selection and value and focusing on local and organic; a fantastic variety of humanely-raised, hormone-free, antibiotic free meat including bison, duck, lamb, and cuts of meat that are not available at most grocery stores; a huge bulk selection where you’ll save 35%; and a large variety of canned goods and everything else (and a whole lot more) that you’d find in the average grocery store. The big question is: Milwaukee has FIVE food co-ops while Chicagoland has only one – can we change that?!?
We’ll be at the Lombard Farmers market tomorrow – will we see you there?
