The Community Food Co-Op of Utah

 "If you eat, you qualify!" This is the motto of the Community Food Co-Op of Utah of which I've been a member since last Spring. The way it works is very simple. The program allows consumers to buy fresh, local food at wholesale prices, without paying for the services of "a middle man," namely the big supermarkets. Members of the co-op submit their monthly orders via telephone or email. Volunteers pick up the food from local wholesalers, package it at the co-op warehouse in Salt Lake, and deliver it to various Pick Up locations in the Salt Lake valley. Obviously, buying in bulk saves us money, so the more members, the less each of us pays for our groceries!

 So where does Lifetime come in? At our "Store!" As you can see, the Store is actually a garage, generously made available to the co-op members by one of our volunteers. Clearfield City was gracious enough to loan her several Lifetime tables and a couple of Lifetime chairs for our monthly food Pick Up day. On Pick Up day, my husband and I arrive early to help unload the goods and get them organized and ready for the eager customers who take advantage of this money-saving program.

These tables are loaded down with all kinds of good, healthy food from local producers: mostly meat and produce, with special monthly extras like nuts, jams, coffees, and teas. Good thing Lifetime tables are designed with commercial strength! After the last happy customer has departed, the tables and chairs are quickly folded up and stored away 'til next month. Their durability, portability, and easy-to-clean low maintenance, makes Lifetime tables and chairs the perfect solution for our Community Food Co-op.

Check out The Community Food Co-Op. The food is high quality and delicious. The volunteers are enthusiastic and generous. And the money goes right back to our own local food producers. Everyone wins and it's a great way to support our community! You can contact the Community Food Co-Op of Utah for more information at (801) 746-7878, or by e-mail at community@crossroads-u-c.org. Their website is http://www.foodco-op.org.

Position at Lifetime Products: I'm a web content writer for our buylifetime website. I create the content for our online catalog and provide you with the detailed specs and product information you need.

Topics I Blog About: are all of the different Lifetime products we have to offer that will make your work easier and your R&R more enjoyable. I will keep you posted about all of the sales, discounts, and clearances we have on Lifetime products.

My favorite Lifetime Products: are the Lifetime tent trailer and the camping table because camping and camp cooking are two of my favorite hobbies.

On a Saturday afternoon you can find me: hiking in the mountains or bird watching at the lake; or I may be experimenting in the kitchen, cooking up my own exotic dishes from ideas I get on the food channel (to the delight or dismay of my family).

My favorite escape: My favorite year-round escape is a good book. My favorite genre is non-fiction, specifically biographies, and particularly foreign cultures. I enjoy browsing the Amazon.com book and movie reviews and tossing in my two cents worth.

What is Blow Molding?
Blow molding. You hear us say it over-and-over again when we talk about our products. But, what does that really mean? In case you don't know, today I'll give you a quick explanation and show you a few photos to, hopefully, help you understand the process of blow molding a little better. Every plastic product that Lifetime makes starts as white plastic pellets, like in this picture. These pellets are hauled in on train cars to our factory. We usenearly 400train cars of pellets per year! The plastic pellets are then pumped to our outdoor silos and then to the building silos. (If you live near our factory in Utah, you may have noticed a new Lifetime logo towering in the skies. The logo is on our newest silo that stores these plastic pellets.) The plastic pellets are then heated by pressure and colored pellets are added at thi...
