Food Packaging Update

An article published this week by Bloomberg Press, titled “Whole Foods Ranked Worst on Cancer-Linked Package Chemicals” highlights per- or poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a class of industrial chemicals used to repel grease, water and stains in consumer products. According to the EPA, PFAS have been linked to cancer, can harm the immune system, and can accumulate in humans and the environment.

The co-op is aware of the issue and working to get more information. We have already determined that the majority of co-op packaging is not impacted, and have contacted manufacturers of the potentially-affected items. Our goals are to identify which, if any, packaging products may be impacted, and to identify alternatives. 

We will post an update with additional information as soon as possible.
The co-op welcomes your feedback.

KPFK’s Uncle Ruthie Performing at the Co-op

KPFK’s Uncle Ruthie, host of Halfway Down the Stairs, will be performing holiday music on her 120 year old pump organ at both co-op locations. Her collection of musical instruments will be in tow so that her audience can join in the playing fun.

Ruthie “Uncle Ruthie” Buell is a poet, a songwriter, a music teacher and has been a radio broadcaster on KPFK 90.7 FM for over 50 years. She’s the host of the children’s show “Halfway Down the Stairs” on KPFK. From both Chicago and a farm in Wisconsin, Ruthie has been the creator of art and song and artistic experiences for as long as anyone has known her. She often performs at Beyond Baroque and the Workman’s Circle in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood, makes delicious meals for friends and neighbors with lots of butter and cream, and can play every instrument hanging on a wall or placed on a tabletop of her home. Her most recent inspired projects have been a book of poems and the creation of The Poet Tree, her front yard Chinese Elm that invites passersby to sit under its shade, write a verse and pin it to the tree.

Register Round Up Benefitting Kaliko Farms in December

Co-op Owners and shoppers are a community centered on kindness and generosity. And, we come together to help members of our community who need an extra hand.

This month, we’re proud to re-introduce the Register Round Up Program at our stores – giving shoppers the opportunity to make a BIG difference by contributing SMALL change at the register. Round up your purchase to the nearest dollar, and 100% of the difference will be donated to a local organization or community member in need.


This month, we’re raising disaster relief funds for Kaliko Farms, who lost a portion of their Malibu flock in the Woolsey fire. Despite the devastation in which the Orians also lost their home located right across the street from their chickens, Kaliko continues to persevere – bringing their Non-GMO free range eggs to markets in our community.
