The Columbus Food Co-op is looking forward to bringing another “Food for Thought Film Series” to the community. The 2012 series was great success and produced the community dialogue that we want to sustain. We have been asked to continue the series and have some unique films lined-up, including:
Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Greenhorns, Mad City Chickens, Women with Cows, Beer Wars, and Babette’s Feast.
In order to make the series possible we need your support. Most of these films are independently made and cost between $85-$300 to purchase with screening rights. There will also be the cost of publicity and reserving YES Cinema. Will you consider becoming a sponsor and help bring these films to Columbus?
Sponsor levels: Donors - $25-50; Supporters - $100-$200; Presenter - $250+
A sponsorship includes publicity via posters, website links, Facebook links, and newspaper and radio mentions. You are also welcome to provide information at our screenings.
If you are interested in becoming a partner for the 2013 “Food for Thought Film Series” or have any questions, please contact us at your earliest convenience.
Thanks for your consideration,
Columbus Food Co-op Membership Committee

We like to refer to this class as "the Chicken Show" because it's going to be a lot of fun! Chef Carrie Douglas and John Roberts will be demonstrating how to cut up an entire chicken and use ALL the parts.
When we purchase chicken breast, tenders, thighs, etc., we're paying more for the packaging and convenience of having it cut than the actual meat. You can save money by purchasing a whole chicken, cutting it yourself, and freezing what you do not need right then (and make delicious stock).
Saturday, February 23
10am - 11:30am

The 15th Annual Empty Bowls was held at Central Middle on January 26. Hundreds of people from the community attended to help raise money for local food banks. Entertainment was provided by Rhythm Conspiracy and Tim Grimm & Jan Lucas Grimm.
The Columbus Food Co-op was just one of the many organizations that worked on making this event another successful one. United Way, Pride Alliance Columbus, and C4 Culinary Arts.
Thanks to everyone who prepared food, volunteered, and attended!
Updates on the search for the Co-op site, cooking classes, events around town, & more!
Co-op Site: Your Co-op board is waiting to hear back from the Redevelopment Commission for their plans on the REMC site on 2ndStreet. Members of the board, along with our architect, toured the building a couple weeks ago to see if it was a viable site for the Co-op.
Another downtown location that the board has always considered is the old Wonder Bread building on Washington Street, which has been used by Hostess in recent years. Last Friday, members of the board met with a family representative for the building to discuss future plans and re-introduce the co-op as a possible consideration. We will keep you posted as information becomes available on any of the downtown locations we have been pursuing.
