Hey Moms & Dads! Fun for your Kids—Co+op Explorers!

Kids ages 12 and under are invited to become a Wheatsville Food Co+op Explorer and be eligible to receive a free piece of fruit per visit! To become a card-carrying Co+op Explorer, kids simply need to bring a parent or supervising adult to the Hospitality Desk and ask to become a Co+op Explorer. Each child will be issued their very own super official Co+op Explorers membership card, sticker and temporary tattoo.

Once kids are signed up, here’s how it works:

  1. Kids and parents stop by the Hospitality Desk, where we keep the designated Co+op Explorers fruit basket. Each child is eligible to take one piece of fruit and enjoy eating it while shopping.
  2. Once your kiddo has selected a piece of fruit, take a sticker and have them wear it to show off their Co+op Explorer pride!
  3. What should you do with the peels or core? Peels can be thrown away in any of our compost bins. If you don’t see a bin, just ask a staff person.

That’s all there is to it! If you have questions, please ask a staff member.
