Sound Consumer, November 2009
Accept the challenge! This Thanksgiving, Puget Sound Fresh, a program of King County and the local nonprofit, Cascade Harvest Coalition, are asking us to pledge to “eat at least one locally produced food.” It’s fun and easy — and a wonderful way to give thanks for the delicious bounty of our region.
Take the hassle out of the holidays and order a complete holiday dinner from your local PCC deli. This Thanksgiving we’re offering traditional turkey dinners, a ham dinner, a vegetarian or vegan lasagna dinner, and for the first time, a vegan Field Roast dinner.

I’m a lucky son of a gun. In terms of buttering one’s daily bread, I count myself among some of the most fortunate beings on the planet. While there’s no shortage of reasons for this, almost none of them are among the most obvious.
We’re pleased to announce the Agrarian Circle — a program that designates the PCC Farmland Trust in your will — so this important work can continue, long after we’re gone. Local, organic farmland is a legacy we are passing on to future generations, and now it can be part of your personal legacy as well.
