This week we have lots of produce (much of it cheaper than usual, see below), and the return of Co-op hummus! Our big news is that we'll be operating from a different room in the Our Lady of the Road drop-in center starting the weekend of November 11 & 12. We'll have a work day this week, Wednesday at 9am to paint this room, it would be great if you could join.
And we have another request: Could you write a few sentences on your experience of the Co-op? We are writing the report for a grant we received earlier this year, and individual testimonies are essential. Just respond to this email in the next couple days. Thanks!
Hope you can join us this week Friday 2-6 or Saturday 9-2.
