Returnable Container List

We send nearly all of our prepared foods out in returnable containers.  Our glass containers are safe to go from refrigerator to oven or microwave.  Our Community Supported Foods members to not pay a deposit as long as containers are returned clean every week.  Our A La Carte customers are charged a refundable deposit based on the list below.  You are welcome to provide your own clean containers (with your name on them) in advance of our portioning process to avoid this charge.  A La Carte customers are asked to bring their containers back when they pick up their next order or within 2 weeks if no order is placed.

Our efforts to reduce our environmental impact will succeed if we all do our part in the process.  Our part is sourcing and purchasing the containers, filling them each week, sterilizing them upon their return, and keeping all records. Your part is to thoroughly wash your containers when empty and to return all of them promptly.  It’s a simple and beautiful model; let’s keep it working!

This is a copy of the form sent out with all prepared foods:
