New Leaf Market Co+op is on a mission to make healthy, organic foods more affordable for everyone. The Co+op Basics program, launched in September 2015, features everyday low prices on many grocery items and household goods. The program includes new value-priced brands (Field Day, Earth’s Best and Cadia, among others) as well as lower prices on some old favorites, such as Organic Valley.
Each of the over 150 Co+op Basics items are marked with a Co+op Basics sign. No need to stock up, this is not a sale item whose price will go up when the sale ends!
To really stretch your food budget and take full advantage of the program, try creatively combining Co+op Basics items to make nutritious, organic meals for your family. Here are three sample meals to get you started. Each meal—two dinners and a breakfast—will feed a family of four for approximately $10 or less!
