Latest in a series of posts on the coronavirus
When I saw all the photos of the bare grocery shelves, all I could think of was: our local farmers have food, and they are setting up safe systems for us to get it! So you can bypass that can of beets and get fresh ones; our local Buy Fresh Buy Local – Greater Lehigh Valley has a great list of local farms and producers at buylocalglv.org/local-food-map (check each one for protocols and hours).
And if I can put in a plug for the Bethlehem Food Co-Op — this situation has shown us clearly why we need a reliable food-delivery system in our area, that will make the path shorter and safer between farmer and consumer. That’s why so many of us are working to bring a community-owned, full-service grocery store to downtown Bethlehem, and we are making good progress to announcing our location and opening. If the time is right for you, we would love to have you join us: bethlehemfood.coop.
