Oryana Community Grant
Call for Applications
Our Community Grant program is one way we give back to the community, with our member-owners being able to participate by voting for the organization of their choice. Last year the grant was split between Tart Trails and Fresh Food Partnership. Applications are now available on our website at oryana.coop or at Customer Service for next year's grant. All applications must be submitted electronically by December 1. If you have any questions, contact Sandi or Luise at 947-0191 or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
It's back! We are once again making our own fresh tempeh! After literally years of back and forth discussion with the Michigan Dept. of Agriculture, we finally received the green light to produce tempeh, a product they were unfamiliar with. It was an educational process for both sides but the end result is nutritious, delicious, organic tempeh for our members and customers. You can find it by the tofu in the cheese cooler.
Cooking For Men Class
Just for guys, a class where you’re allowed to play with fire, use gadgets and sharp knives, and learn to make some great tasting, easy dishes. And then when you’re done, you can actually eat the results. These are easy recipes, nothing too fancy or difficult and nothing that takes too long to make. We will prepare a 4-course meal including appetizer, entrée, (Pasta with Kale, Sausage Onion & Jalapeno), salad, and dessert, (Bodacious Lemon Tart), worthy of impressing the special women in your life.
