I think they normally do their shopping at different stores than Costco, and those store probably have better options? In the What to bring when coming to Wheaton Labs thread, Ash mentions these grocery stores:

There is no head cook.  Technically, I provide staples and each person does their own cooking.  But it does seem that they have a system of trading cooking chores on different nights.

Ok. What's a "staple". I'm guessing not pop tarts but that's only a guess.

I'm trying to avoid work and cooking 🙃 (though glad to help the kitchen an hour or so a day if I can be of use). So trying to find a foodish contribution that will get me fed and actually make the boss and the cook both happy about it all.

Eg.: 20# white rice? Black beans? Pasta? Whole wheat flower? Carrots? Green beans?

Remember that I'm not buying for myself and it's a little dicey when one is not shopping for themself but trying to provide stuff that the cook will use as usual. And hopefully I can get some nice meals out of it.

Maybe put cook online here for a moment?

Regards,
Rufus

I think staples are things like eggs, pasta, flour, beans, rice, veggies, etc. Everything is organic or better. I know the staples are generally things that are vegan/vegetarian. Maybe bring organic cheese and eggs and some meat and chocolate?

I think Paul pretty much lets the Boots figure things out for themselves as to what they're eating and who's cooking. It seems like it's someone different every day?

I'm thinking that once you've paid (if you haven't already), Paul will probably get you in touch with someone in Bootcamp who might know what would be good to have picked up on your way in?

Looks like we're talking crosswise. Perhaps this may not be a good time or fit. I'm going to proceed on west.

Thanks Nicole for your help, Paul for your responses. Some other time maybe and work things out ahead rather than ad hoc.

Best to all.
Rufus
