If you think Thanksgiving was a busy time at The Wedge, wait ’til you see what Co-op Partners Warehouse (CPW) was up to that week. CPW, our direct produce-buying and distributing program, did some serious work to ensure that co-op shoppers all over the Midwest got fresh, local and organic produce to put on their Thanksgiving tables.
This image breaks down just how much holiday produce CPW trucks moved from their St. Paul warehouse to seven neighboring states in time for the big feast. The connections to growers that CPW brings to The Wedge and the local, small-scale food system that we’re building together is just one more thing we have to be thankful for this holiday season!
