When you think "sustainable," it's not too much of a jump to local foods.

But the Whole Foods Co-op in Duluth is thinking "sustainable" in a lot of ways.  From their LEED-certified building in the Hillside neighborhood (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and the new LEED-designed building coming to West Duluth next year, the Co-op is thinking sustainable communities with the addition of some low-cost options for folks who are on federal food assistance programs and becoming a WIC vendor (a food assistance program for Women, Infants and Children).
