Don't miss the 2013 Dickens of a Run and Walk set for 10 a.m., Sunday, December 8. Last year, more than 200 runners and walkers enjoyed the morningwhile supporting some great causes.
The jolly jog or jaunt (5K run and 2K walk) meanders through the streets of historic Stoughton during our lovely Victorian Holiday Weekend. Whether you're running or walking the course, be sure to dress in your best holiday costume.
The first 95 participants to register receive a souvenir winter hat. Signup is available online at www.active.com.
Or you can download a PDF of the entry form or pick one up the next time you're in the Co-op.

Did you know that Newman's Own Organics became a separate company from Newman's Own in 2001? Both organizations are involved in charity. Since 1982 Paul Newman and the Newman's Own Foundation have donated more than $350 million dollars worldwide.
Lucky for you Newman-O's are currently on sale at the co-op, so now's the time to really stock up! These organic creme filled wafer cookies are highly addictive and they have a variety of flavors to please the crowd.
Almond milk is one of the most nutritious milk substitutes available. It doesn't contain saturated fats or cholesterol. It's very good for your heart since it does contain omega-3 fatty acids. A typical eight ounce serving of almond milk contains about one gram of protein and one gram of dietary fiber. Almonds are already rich in vitamins and minerals, so almond milk doesn't need to be fortified. Vitamin E, manganese, selenium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, fiber, phosphorous and calcium are all found in almonds.
Low in calories and rich in nutrients...maybe you should pick up some Almond Breeze to dunk your Newman-O's!
Thanks to a great group of volunteers, the Yahara River Grocery Cooperative was able to host 170 participants (almost double from last year) and raise nearly $4,000 for the co-op.
A big thanks goes out to all the volunteers, venders, sponsors and participants of Tour de Food 2013!
Let the Co-op do all the work for your next event or get-together. Try a Mediterranean platter with olives, feta cheese, toasted pita, sliced cucumber, sliced red onion, hummus and spinach dip. Or how about a cheese platter with an assortment of Wisconsin cheeses or our fruit platter with a medley of fresh seasonal fruit and yogurt honey dip. Also, our famous chicken salad is available by the pound.
Everything on our menu is made from the same healthful ingredients you find at the Co-op. So if you want to keep your gathering fresh, green and LOCAL, choose the Co-op to make it special.

You don‘t have to become a member to shop. Your grocery welcomes everyone. Becoming a member of the Co-op, however, gives you an opportunity to join your friends and neighbors in building a community-owned grocery that serves the members while providing Stoughton with good jobs and good food.
