Bountiful Baskets food co-op up and running

Bountiful Baskets

· What is it? A volunteer based co-op that pools our contributions to purchase fresh fruits & vegetables.

· When do I contribute? Every other week starting at noon on Monday & ending at 10 p.m. on Tuesday. Monday, February 20th is our next contribution date. Sign ups are on a first come, first serve basis.

· How much does it cost? You contribute $15 and receive $50 in fresh produce.

· When do I receive my produce? Every other Saturday of the contribution week. If you contribute on Monday, you get your produce that Saturday.

· Where do I pick up my produce? If you order from the Payson site, you pick up your basket at 7:45 a.m. at Payson Elementary School. If you order from the Pine site, you pick up your basket at 7 a.m. at the rear entrance to the Senior Center.

· What do I bring? A box or basket to carry your produce home, a smile and a great attitude.

· What can I do to help? This is a volunteer only co-op and we cannot run it without your help. Please volunteer whenever you are able. You can help sort produce into baskets or help clean up after the pick ups. Spread the word…the more contributions, the more produce can be purchased.

· What else is available from Bountiful Baskets? On your contribution day you will find many add-on items on the website. For an additional fee you can choose from an ever changing list. Choices may include healthy breads, themed vegetable packages, case items of fruits and vegetables, grains, granola, etc. You must contribute to a basket in order to add on extra items.

· Who can I contact if I have questions or need help? Can contact Michelle Stemm at 928-200-7864.  She is the Payson site coordinator.  Or go to
