PCC Community Markets (PCC) on Wednesday launched what it’s calling its Shared Values Meal program, providing ingredients and a recipe for a meal that feeds up to four people for $9.95.
The program is part of its ongoing efforts to address food access across the Puget Sound area.
Shared Values Meals can be prepped and plated in fewer than 30 minutes, according to Seattle-based PCC, which has Eastside stores in Bellevue, Bothell, Issaquah, Kirkland, and Redmond. Meals feature sustainably sourced staples and an easy-to-follow recipe. The meals and ingredients will change each month.
The meal for July is red curry vegetables with coconut milk over jasmine rice.
“As a neighborhood grocer, we are actively working to address food insecurity in our region,” PCC CEO and President Suzy Monford said in a news release announcing the program. “Introducing the Shared Values Meal program is another step in the co-op living its values; we are taking action to support our community with more affordable access to healthy, organic food.”
Brenna Davis, PCC’s vice president of social and environmental responsibility, said PCC provides for the community through PCC’s grocery rescue program and with contributions to local food banks and small farms.
“Through these long-standing programs, PCC provides immediate support to more than 40 organizations and family-owned farms across the Puget Sound, and the new Shared Values Meal program is a natural extension of our ongoing efforts to increase access to healthy, organic food,” Davis said.
