Food donations at La Colaborativa have a whole new look these days.
The Mercado is a brand new effort by La Colaborativa that goes beyond just keeping the community fed. Thanks to the building skills of Alejandro (one of our beloved staff), there are now cheerful, colorful carts filled to the brim with fresh fruits, vegetables and other food twice a week.
On Tuesdays from 2:00pm – 6:00pm and Thursdays from 2:00pm – 7:00pm (or until the food is gone), community members can collect whatever they need from the market, which leads to less food waste, and (most importantly) to each individual having the sovereignty to choose the items they want. This is what building up our community looks like.
