Bluff Country Co-op’s newly expanded kitchen, which has been opening in stages over the past month, now features a salad bar, a hot bar, soups, sandwiches, and Winona’s only juice bar. In addition, a “Fresh at Four” program is expected to launch next Monday.
“We’re excited to offer such a wide variety of healthy meal options,” said Diane Leutgeb Munson, BCC’s Kitchen Manager. “Whether it is a fresh juice for breakfast, lunch on the go or a side salad to round out a meal, we have you covered.”
Keeping with the co-op’s values, all food will be made from scratch with high quality ingredients. In addition, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options are always available. “I’m looking forward to continuing to develop our newly expanded menu to meet the needs and tastes of our customers,” said Leutgeb Munson.
Customers can dine in or take their food to go. A newly remodeled seating area provides plenty of café-style space, while a Grab ‘n Go selection of prepackaged sandwiches, soups and salads serves those on the go. The Co-op’s new “Fresh at Four” program will provide freshly roasted whole chicken and freshly baked bread every day at 4pm. “We want to make it possible for busy families to sit down at the table together to share a meal,” said Leutgeb Munson.
Bluff Country Co-op is Winona’s community-owned, cooperatively run grocery store and kitchen. Everybody can shop at the Co-op – you don’t have to be a member. Bluff Country Co-op is located downtown Winona at 121 W. 2nd, and is open daily from 8am-8pm.
