More Good Food to Come in 2014

As we welcome the new year, we want to reflect on the past year before looking forward and sharing some new, innovative ways we’ll be bringing you and your family more Good Food in 2014. In 2013, we planted the seeds for growth, including expanding our delivery to the East Coast — Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Delaware — offering more delivery day options, and partnering with more local, artisan producers to add hundreds of new foods to our just-revamped Shop. When we weren’t connecting you to all that Good Food, we were connecting with you at our community events or virtually on social media. Take a look at the fun we had bringing you the freshest, most delicious […]

Give Good Food to Colorado Children in Need

The Door to Door Organics team and it families deliver food for Thanksgiving

It’s hard to believe that in 2012, more than 26,000 Denver children were facing a weekend of going hungry after leaving school on Friday. This was the motivation for creating Food For Thought, a volunteer-run nonprofit that provides over 800 schoolchildren from low-income families weekly care packages to feed a family of four two meals over the weekend. Food For Thought hopes these “PowerSacks” guarantee that the kids avoid facing hunger over the weekend and that classroom performance improves come Monday morning. Since October, Door to Door Organics has been donating organic produce to Fairview Elementary School in Denver every Friday. We’re happy to help Food For Thought achieve their goal of offering fresh fruits and veggies to students and […]

Join Us in Flooding Our Farmers With Love

dave and chad

Supporting local has never been more important. Colorado’s farmers, ranchers, and producers need our help as they recover from the floods. While millions of dollars in flood relief have been pouring in, “few of those dollars are going toward helping our farmers,” observed Local Food Shift, a nonprofit focused on helping Coloradoans shift 10% of their food budgets to locally sourced foods. Door To Door Organics is the first and only grocer in the state of Colorado to go beyond the 10% pledge and take the 20% Local Food Shift pledge! That means we are committing to 20% of our sales coming from local foods so we can continue to support our farmers during these hard times. But we can’t […]

Do you want to raise funds for your child’s school but don’t want to buy junk food or needless knickknacks to show your support? Door to Door Organics makes school fundraising easy—and healthy—with our co-op fundraising program that donated more than $11,000 to Colorado schools and non-profits in 2012. In just four years, we’ve helped local schools raise a total of more than $42,000. Local schools say the co-op program builds community, encourages kids to eat healthier foods, and provides needed aid to help them reach goals. “We love Door to Door Organics for many reasons,” says Megan Morgan coordinator of program at The Peak School in Breckenridge. “We love the regular influx of funds because there are very few […]

Go Natural When Dyeing Easter Eggs

eco-egg-dyeing-meme

When I was a kid, every Easter I dunked hard-boiled eggs in coffee mugs filled with those fizzing tablets that instantly produced vibrant colors. It was the ’70s, or the better-living-through-chemistry decade, when no one questioned how chemicals affected our health. Today, even though the kits currently sold in stores proclaim to be nontoxic, many still contain synthetic food dyes that studies have linked to allergies and behavioral problems like ADHD in children. Why not skip the kits with neon colors and glitter pens (they contain polyurethane) and go au naturel this spring? Using veggies, fruits, spices, tea, and coffee will produce a vivid array of hues from soft pastels to deep, earthy tones. Of course, creating dyes with organic produce […]

The Eating of the Green for St. Pat’s

The kids will love the green eggs, especially when served with ham.

Like almost 12% of the American population, I can trace my ancestry to the Emerald Isle. It’s a country that has lush vegetation, except for the blighted  potato crop during the Great Famine that caused 1 million Irish to emigrate to America. Green, therefore, is the color most associated with St. Patrick’s Day, when we are all a little Irish. In my family, which is 50% Irish, we celebrated the color and the heritage throughout the day. My mom would maybe give us socks with green shamrocks for luck, perhaps she’d slip some green food coloring in our milk for lunch, and we always, without fail, had Corned Beef and Cabbage for dinner. You may want to try to start your […]
