Wild Oats Co-op
Wild Oats is a community-owned business dedicated to providing healthy, affordable food that support the local economy and sustainable living. The market stocks a variety of products with organic and additive-free ingredients, from local farmers and producers. We’re thrilled that Wild Oats and Williamstown Farmers Market are engaging in a collaborative effort to address food insecurity in our community. We cannot adequately express our appreciation to the entire Wild Oats community for its generous sponsorship of our Community Essentials Initiative (see Community Essentials Initiative page for details) bringing farm produce and eggs to local food pantries through the Round Up for Change Program in June 2021. Here’s an excerpt from our Board’s thank-you note to the Wild Oats Community:
Our gratitude for your generous support of the Williamstown Farmers Market Community Essentials Initiative is overflowing! For the entire month of June, the Wild Oats Round Up for Change Program was dedicated to enabling our Community Essentials Initiative to purchase fresh produce and eggs from our local farmers for donation to local food pantries – helping us achieve our goal of continuing to provide fresh, local foods to families facing food insecurity.
We’re heartened by the breadth and depth of your commitment to this initiative. Your Round Up for Change program signifies a rewarding collaboration among the board and staff of Wild Oats, the Coop’s broad community of members and customers, local farmers, volunteers from St. John’s Episcopal Church, and our local food pantries. Working together to pursue our common goals strengthens the fabric of this community.
