Relish the Last of Summer's Harvest

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer October 8, 2012

This time of year always brings to mind my sweet Norwegian grandmother, Helen. Grandma would use the last of the ripening tomatoes and red peppers to make her famous Indian Relish – not famous to anyone else but very famous and special to her family.

Candidate Statement - Nancy Ettenheim

Sounding Board
By Your Board October 12, 2012

The word “pride” is what I most closely associate with my service on the Outpost Board of Directors. Pride in the mission of providing local and/or organic food to foster a healthier community. Pride in my ownership in a solid and successful organization. Pride in the cooperative which shares power evenly among all of us who are owners. Pride in the staff whose spirit of compromise kept the good ship Outpost afloat during the recent financial crisis. And finally, pride in the ethical and transparent manner in which Outpost conducts its business at all levels. In a nutshell, that’s my “Why.”

Candidate Statement - David Lee

Sounding Board

Serving on the Outpost board would allow me to expand the scope of my work as a food advocate. I believe in the power of food to transform and build communities. Over the course of human history, great civilizations and cultures developed anywhere people could grow, cultivate and share food. This is no coincidence. However, as we have become more disconnected from our food, our communities have also become increasingly fragmented. Co-ops give consumers and the communities they serve an active, ownership role in repairing these disconnections and fragmentations, while also bending the cost curve toward a more just food system.

Candidate Statement - Douglas Spencer

Sounding Board
By Your Board October 19, 2012

Every time I walk into Outpost I feel a sense of family. As an environmentally conscious adult this is important to me and I know a lot of hard work and integrity is needed to accomplish that. I feel that as consumers we need to honor and support establishments that align with our personal convictions; especially those that make every effort to care about the communities they are a part of. Outpost has accomplished this and for that they need to be recognized. It is our duty to give back to the community wherever possible. I wish to give back to Outpost what it has given me. As a board member, I will work to maintain and improve Outpost Natural Foods to the best of my ability.

Orange-Glazed Squash

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer October 29, 2012

There are many reasons to love winter squash. It has a delicious, creamy taste – it’s orange (my favorite color) and it’s a nutritional powerhouse.  It also brings to mind autumn love and the warm memories of raking leaves with my children years ago. I think I used to purchase frozen squash in those days and even that was a treat shared by my family.

A Visit to Walnut Way

Sounding Board
By Your Board October 30, 2012

On Saturday, October 6, I had the pleasure of attending Harvest Day at Walnut Way, on 17th and North Avenue.  The entire 2200 block of N. 17th Street was blocked off for the celebration, with a large sound truck on the north end, providing a stage and sound system for talk and music.
