So, so exciting. In case you missed my post that explains the heart (and dare I say, community-based soul?) of a what a Food Co-op actually is, please read this.
I’m happy to say the first meeting got some press in one of the local papers today as the Express Times ran an article about the idea and the meeting, as well. This is important because this is going to be a lot of work. The fact that we are going to need a lot of volunteers, staff, lawyers, accountants, folks with experience, etc… is not lost on us and the more we spread the word, the more we can find those people. So keep telling everyone!
This Wednesday meeting is also a vegetarian/vegan potluck. You don’t have to bring food, but if you feel inclined, please do! Everyone is always happier then they are eating. Pair that with community involvement and the Library might start to shoot out actual beacons of light this Wednesday.
