Occasionally some members find there is too much bounty in a full bin for their household, so they share with a “bin buddy”. Some members like to split everything down the middle while others prefer to take a particular item while leaving the entire amount of another item. For example, let’s say you and your bin buddy receive a pineapple and a cantaloupe. You might leave the pineapple, but keep the cantaloupe rather than cutting both in half at pick-up. Whichever option you choose, make sure you and your bin buddy have talked it over and agreed when not splitting evenly.

Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations.
Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled ‘organic,’ a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.” (U.S. Department of Agriculture, USDA)
