Donut Miss the New Pumpkin Donuts

Hi fellow good food lovers,

Though summer is certainly still in the air, the autumn is starting to literally bear fruit...in the form of local, organic winter squash from Cinzori Organic Farm in Ceresco, MI. For only $1.49 per pound, we have their:
  • spaghetti squash
  • acorn squash
  • pie pumpkins, and...
  • CARNIVAL! - a lovely acorn shaped, yellow-skinned squash with dark green and orange confetti speckles. 
As long as we're on the topic of pumpkins...did you know that we now have Soil Friends farm-made donuts, plain and cinnamon sugar, in fresh every morning, 7 days a week? We do! And starting tomorrow, we'll have their vanilla-iced pumpkin donuts too! These are made using pumpkin grown by Soil Friends. Fun!
Finally, also filling out the fun category, please mark your calendar for next Wednesday evening. PFC will be showing Ratatouille and feasting on $5 dinner deals of hot dogs and sides. Plan to come down to for the $5 Dinner Deal any time after 11am, and bring your own chairs and blankets for the movie, starting at about 7:15pm.

See you soon!
Chris

Apples, Peaches, & Ratatouille

 

PFC Peeps,

 

Find some delicious early autumn options in produce including local Paula Red and Zestar apples from Crisp Country Acres, as well as BEAUTIFUL local organic peaches from Molter Family Orchards. We get both of those items through our progressing partnership with the KVCC ValleyHub.

 

The Deli has been hard at work putting together some delicious options for us all to enjoy. This week our creamy Blue Cheese Potato Salad made a comeback, and tomorrow's $5 Dinner Deal will be pasta (gluten-free available), and a selection of three house-made sauces. Don't miss it!

 

Come join us at PFC for family date night on Wednesday, September 26! Enjoy the $5 Dinner Deal until 8pm and watch Ratatouille on the big screen behind PFC. Bring your own lawn chairs and blankets. We'll start the movie at 7:15pm.

 

Finally, in solidarity with the good and hard work being done in our community right now to both safeguard some of the community's most vulnerable, and to work toward long-term local solutions to homelessness, Change for Change for the rest of September will go toward purchasing consumable goods and equipment for the Bronson Park Freedom Encampment. A member of our PFC AntiRacism Transformation Team has taken it on to organize with the folks in the Park to determine what's needed and to bring those items down once a week or as often as needed.

 

We appreciate all your heartfelt support of good work in our community. We are so much stronger together.

 

In Cooperation,
Chris

Bronson Park Freedom Encampment

There is an urgent need in our community to help support people without homes who are fighting to have lives of dignity in Kalamazoo.

When you round up your purchase, your change goes to meet the immediate needs of those at the Bronson Park Freedom Encampment, including food, water, gear, health supplies, and more.
