Get to Know Lakewinds Food Co-op: 2017 Sponsor of the Mill City Cooks Demos

Lakewinds Food Co-op is sponsoring the 2017 Mill City Cooks demos, and MCFM founder Brenda Langton couldn't be more pleased.  Per Brenda, "We love our new Lakewinds partners, they are an AMAZING group of folks who are so devoted to the market. We are fortunate to have them on board." With that ringing endorsement, we look forward to a fun season of cooking demos. An added bonus this year is the addition of an activity table for the little ones, allowing parents, grandparents and other guardians a relaxing demo experience.

May 6, 2017 Mill City Farmers Market Jill Holter and Mary Jacobs of Lakewinds greeted May 6 Opening Day shoppers with information and complimentary reusable totes.

Founded in 1972, Lakewinds boasts over 21,000 community owners between the Richfield, Chanhassen and Minnetonka stores. They put the health of their customers first by NOT carrying products with artificial colors, flavors and preservatives, growth hormones and antibiotics, high fructose corn syrup and other nasties.

Lakewinds is a community-minded organization. During the most recent fiscal year, they donated $150,000 to help fund initiatives such as developing regional organic agriculture, food and health-related community events, local food shelves, and food education outreach in schools.

Check out the blog page on their website for an array of useful information. :)
