- Did you know that EACH MONTH over 90 working members are diligent to keep the Co-op open? The Board of Directors would like to thank each of you. The Co-op Staff is very dedicated. A sampling of the many other workers are the Department Heads, who work hard to keep wholesome food, supplements and healthy personal care and cleaning products ordered. The freight crews are busy carrying freight and stocking shelves. Cashiers, cleaning crews, packagers and many others are faithful to see their jobs are done. Because this is a Cooperative, every member owns the Co-op and has the opportunity of reduced prices. If you’re a working member up to 30% can be saved. That is good news for your budget.
- Several years ago the Member-Owners voted to buy a vacant lot on 10th Street. Baker Food Co-op is now the proud owner of that property. One of the options that will be investigated is using the property for a Community Garden.
- The Tasting Fair: The Baker Food Co-op Tasting Fair is scheduled for Thursday, April 25. The Co-op will be closed at 4 pm to prepare for the event and will open again at 5. Come any time between 5 to 8 pm. Whether you’ve attended each year or this will be the first time, be sure to mark your calendars for an evening of special fellowship and good food. Product samples will be available, too. Please invite your friends or family who haven’t been to the Co-op or taken the opportunity to become a member. You’ll be glad you came!
- A Marketing Seminar is planned for Monday, February 25 from 1 to 2:30 pm. Department Heads and others who are interested in finding out more about this important part of the Co-op will want to be there. More information will be given later.
