Such sad news that this wonderful store is closing. The work of employment in integrated settings is worthy of support not simply from a business standpoint, but because of the strength of the good it does for the community. This healthy food grocery store does much more than provide good food. If changes in funding or loss of a profit margin prevents this great gem in our community from staying open, we stand with them in this heart breaking announcement and ask our community, foundations and others to come together to keep this from happening. Some stuff is just not fair!

Nature's Bin

It is with a heavy heart that we tell you that Nature’s Bin is closing its doors after more than 41 years. As shoppers’ options to purchase natural and organic products have expanded, we have experienced a dramatic decline in sales and Cornucopia can no longer continue to operate Nature’s Bin.

The last day for retail sales will be November 12, 2016.

Cornucopia will continue to provide job placement and employment services for people with disabilities as well as job training at its programs At the Cornucopia Vocational Training Center, Eliza Jennings, Jennings Center, T.J. Maxx and Darice Wholesale Crafts.

Nature’s Bin Catering will continue to provide healthy, delicious food for catering customers.

We thank you for being a Nature’s Bin customer and we hope you will continue to support Cornucopia in its efforts to empower people with disabilities through job training and placement. A full press release and FAQs are available on our website – www.naturesbin.com or www.cornucopia-inc.org.

Last night the City of Cleveland recognized Down Syndrome leaders in our community thanks to Toni Mullee, executive director of The Up Side Of Downs Greater Cleveland. A very nice opportunity to recognize these three fine gentlemen for their lifelong commitment to people with Down syndrome. These three gentlemen represent the best: a physician who devotes his life long work to the care and research to improve the lives of people with IDD, A public servant devoted to caring for all in everything he does and a young dedicated star athlete that enjoys his friendship with another dedicated athlete with Down syndrome. Each of these fine gentleman are raising the positive attributes and caring level up a few notches! Congratulations Dr. Carl Tyler, William Denihan and JR Smith, one of our very own Cleveland Cavaliers!
