Thanks to all who came out to our General Meeting on December 12. The Board presented an update on the progress of the food co-op development, including reports from the newly formed action committees. We have been working on fundraising, building plans, exploring partnerships for the coop “complex”, and working on the program for the store–departments, affordability programs, and sourcing partnerships,
In 2014 we will be holding general meetings every other month: the next meeting will be Tuesday evening February 4–exact time and location will come. The various action committees will also be choosing regular meeting times and we hope that more members will get involved in the planning.
