Kettle Valley Food Co-op gets bike-powered flour mill

The Kettle Valley Food Co-op will soon be peddling for “flour power,” as it is currently developing a bike-powered flour mill; a great way to exercise and take home some fresh ground flour.

As the Kettle Valley Food Co-op (KVFC) enters year two of operation, it is “going nuts over beans.”

September will bring on the second bulk food ordering opportunity for co-op members.

Bulk items will include a variety of nuts, beans and other high demand food items, such as oils and condiments. These food products are not available from local producers and will be organic and of the highest quality.

The co-op will soon be peddling for “flour power,” as it is currently developing a bike-powered flour mill; a great way to exercise and take home some fresh ground flour.

Those of you who have not used fresh ground flour in your baking will be in for a real treat – taste the difference. The Kettle Valley Food Co-op’s distribution day has changed as well as the location.

Members can pick up their food order every Thursday, behind the Sunbean Cafe close to the RCMP office, just look for the large white tent.

The co-op remains dedicated to food security by providing wholesome, locally-produced food to residents of the Boundary.

Please contact the KVFC for ordering information.  Send enquiries or orders to bulk@kettlevalleyfoodcoop.org or fill out an order form at the Sunbean on Thursdays.
