We’ve set up three home delivery products: 1) within two miles of our Franklin Plaza site (priced at $5); 2) from two to four miles (priced at $10) and 3) more than four miles (priced at $15). They are listed under the Iowa Food Cooperative. Deliveries will be from 6-9 pm on distribution Thursdays.
