I first heard about Trader Joe’s on a raw food mailing list. At that time, we didn’t have Trader Joe’s in NYC. When the first one opened up here, I flew there to see it and buy stuff. Since then, Trader Joe’s stores have popped up all over the city. I would like to work there, if truth be told.
Meanwhile, I have just learned that Trader Joe’s donates food to organizations which provide food to the less fortunate. How do I know? Yorkville Common Pantry’s “brown bag” contained a fresh packaged Trader Joe’s Kale slaw salad, of those they sell for people who do not want to make their own lunch or dinner. Way to go, Trader Joe’s! We thank you!
