I'm spending a couple days each week for a few months working at Polly's Country Market in Chelsea, MI. It's been nice getting to know the management and staff at the store. Everybody is very friendly. As a part of the Chelsea Wellness Coalition's community goals to boost nutrition in and around Chelsea I'm working to bring more nutritious options to the community's main grocery store. We've already added some fresh, homemade salads to the deli case and created some grab & go salads perfect for a quick, healthy and delicious meal. If you live in the area or you happen to be driving through please stop by and sample some of the new salads. Please give us your feedback. If you have suggestions, we'd be happy to see what we can do to accommodate your requests. Also, while you're shopping if you have any food and nutrition questions please come and find me (on days I'm there) and I'll be happy to help you while you shop!

I love this and I'm not that far away so I should probably try and come visit one of these days. :)

That would be great Kati! I have family up towards your neck of the woods too so maybe we can meet up sometime I'm visiting mid-mich.
Wow. This is great for people who live nearby because they could be able to avail fresh and homemade salads, which sound nutritious, delicious and healthy. I wish our local grocery store come up with this homemade salads. I am starting to miss having salads since they are only available from the restaurant or if I make one. Good luck with new products in the future.

Thanks for your wonderful comments Lynne! Maybe if you make some requests at your local grocery store and get your friends and family and neighbors to do the same... just maybe your voices will be heard and you can be an agent of change. Maybe with enough customers wanting fresh, homemade food in your community the stores will fulfill your wishes. Good Luck.
