Fresh in the Deli: Hot Chocolate

Here at Common Ground we love making things from scratch.

Our motto is if it can be made from local, organic, fair trade ingredients, we're in! That's why right now our deli counter is serving a rich and creamy housemade, from-scratch hot chocolate. With  chocolate syrup made right here at the co-op, local Kilgus milk or milk alternative and your choice of housemade whipped cream you'll be gushing over this wintertime delight. Winter wouldn’t be the same without it!

Sustainable Conversation

As a member of Common Ground’s Sustainability Committee, I recently attended a workshop and conversation at the University of Illinois hosted by The Institute for Sustainability, Energy & the Environment (iSEE). As a committee, we are very interested in exploring ways that Common Ground can extend efforts toward our 4th End: Our local food system is equitable, robust, and environmentally sound.
