Info for Friday November 5th and Saturday the 6th

Hi all,
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!
