Nature's Bin Gets Some National Recognition
The Sloane Avenue store recognized by national accrediting organization for employment opportunities.
This marks the 22nd straight year that Cornucopia has been given distinction for its employment practices.
Nature’s Bin was recognized by CARF — the organization formerly known as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities — in several categories, including employment services; community employment services; and job-site training.
Nature’s Bin — a full-service natural and organic foods market located on Sloane Avenue — is operated by the nonprofit, Cornucopia.
According to the press release, CARF — founded in 1966 — is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served.
“We take great pride in this accreditation,” Scott Duennes, executive director of Cornucopia/Nature’s Bin, said in a statement. “This achievement is an indication of the commitment and dedication that Cornucopia and Nature’s Bin have in improving the quality of lives in the people we serve.”
