This Week in Anabel's (2/22)!
Greetings loved ones,
Let’s take a journey through our first week of operations and the week ahead as we all gear up for a restful February break!

Meal Kits Galore!
As we push through the next few weeks of winter (thanks Punxsutawney Phil…), Anabel’s Grocery wants to highlight seasonal root veggies with $5 meal kits that include a FREE recipe! This is the perfect way to eat fresh, nutritious food and ensure nothing goes to waste as we push through the home stretch to break! …Also, who can say no to a free recipe?
Keep an eye out for upcoming media showcasing a cooking demo as well!

Food Justice Corner!
Going to the Root: Justice in Our Food System Begins in Our Farm System
In order to address food justice, we must begin with food production, before food even reaches our table. Farming is a crucial part of our food production system as it provides the world’s food supply. When addressing food justice in our food system, we must also recognize the racial injustices that permeate our current farm system.

Follow Along with AEM 3385!
To get involved in Anabel’s Grocery, every worker must currently be enrolled in, or must have previously taken, AEM 3385 (Social Entrepreneurship Practicum: Anabel’s Grocery). In the course, discussions regarding food insecurity, inequities created by our current food system, racial capitalism, and much more occur weekly. This semester we would love to discuss these topics that impact us all with our customers.
This week, we focused on reflecting upon excerpts of How to Be an Antiracist under the lens of how can Anabel’s Grocery further its mission of being actively antiracist and anticapitalist to transform our current food system. We now pose a question for you to reflect on…
How do you actively pursue antiracist and anticapitalist initiatives in your life? How do you see Anabel’s Grocery pursuing this goal? Let us know by scanning the QR Code below and we will share your thoughts next week!
This semester, Anabel’s Grocery looks forward to continuing to spread our mission across campus! Keep an eye out for more interactive pop-ups, content, and newsletters (ala make sure to subscribe below and tell your friends to subscribe too)!
With that being said, we look forward to the next week of operations and wish you all a great February Break at the tail end :)
