Farm Table Dinner with Southside Community Health Services

On Jan. 16, we kept the cold outside to share warmth and good food at the Creamery Café’s third Farm Table dinner, with Southside Community Health Services. Chef de Cuisine Matt Kappra provided a mostly vegan, multi-course meal to celebrate our partnership with Southside, the co-op’s SEED recipient this month. Crisp and refreshing beverage pairings featured locally-made kombucha from Feral Beverage Co.

Seasonal fruits, vegetables, and fungi were abundant in a spinach citrus salad, hearty kale and bean soup, and slow roasted mushroom “ragu”. Though other Farm Table dinners have featured meat protein, this choice of ingredients was specifically inspired by Southside’s work as a community clinic that regards food as medicine. In support of that philosophy, Southside Community Health Services offers a “prescription CSA” program, as well as cooking classes. Their work serves patients who cannot afford good food or who may struggle with the costs of medication. Viable community partnerships, like the one with Seward Co-op, expands what Southside can do as a community clinic.

Seward Co-op Creamery Café may be a stop on your way to work or a go-to brunch or happy hour choice for your family. To many of us, it’s more than that. We’re happy to offer the Creamery Café as a space to learn and share experiences with those who are committed to expanding access to nutritious food. Stay tuned for future opportunities to engage with other community partners, as well as with local farmers and producers, at the café.

Board of Director Candidate Forum

Seward Co-op’s Board of Directors will host a Candidate Forum as part of the 2017 election. We will gather in the Creamery Café to hear from and meet the candidates, and to visit with fellow co-op owners. LaDonna Sanders-Redmond, Diversity and Community Engagement Manager, will facilitate the large group portion of the evening and we’ll also have some time for informal conversation. In past years, voters have told the board that written essays alone make it difficult to distinguish candidates. We hope the forum will encourage dialogue about governing our cooperative. What questions might you ask of co-op board candidates?!

Light food and one free drink ticket is provided with all RSVPs. Additional drinks will be available for purchase. Space is limited; please register now!

Please note:
 beginning at 6 p.m. we will admit those who RSVP. If you are not present by 6:15 p.m., your spot may be given to others on a first come, first served basis.
