Lucky’s Market partners with Ozarks Food Harvest
Exciting news at The Food Bank as we announce our newest retail partnership with Springfield’s latest organic grocery store, Lucky’s Market, which opened on Wednesday, Jan. 10.
The Boulder, Colorado-based market informed Ozarks Food Harvest that it was also chosen, along with two other local nonprofits, to be one of the first Springfield Bags for Change recipients which will support The Food Bank’s After-School program.
Community members are encouraged to bring their reusable bags each time they shop to earn a wooden dime. Dimes are then put into the community member’s choice of nonprofit organization.
At the end of the quarter, which ends in May, Lucky’s will match the amount raised. According to Brooke Buchanan, regional market specialist at Lucky’s, the company aims to provide healthy food at an affordable price.
“When you walk in our store, we have a big, fresh produce department, and its the main focal point of the store,” Buchanan said. “We offer organic as well as conventional produce and we try to work with local producers as we can, especially in the summer.”
The market also aims to work with local producers of other food and even skin care products. The shelves of the store are lined with familar products and local products, which gives each Lucky’s Market location a unique feel.
The market also offers a program called Sip and Stroll, where you can drink a glass of wine or beer while shopping. The store’s cafe also carries coffee from St. Louis based Kaldi’s Coffee.
Lucky’s is also The Food Bank’s newest Retail Pick-Up partner. For more information about Lucky’s Market, visit luckysmarket.com/anthem.
