Almost four and a half years after we reported on the origins of what was then the Delridge Produce Co-op, its evolution toward operation of a Delridge Grocery co-op store has less than one year to go. At the next public meeting tomorrow (Monday) night, they’ll be enlisting your help in simple ways to volunteer, as well as signing up more founding members:
… A co-op grocery can only happen if the community embraces it and joins together to make it happen. … Many of you have also began the process of contributing toward your share in the future grocery store. If you have not already done this, now is the time. We need 500 founding members to start to bring this grocery on the road to reality. We can do this by contributing and then sharing information so your neighbors and friends can consider becoming an owner of the co-op, too.
At last month’s public meeting, we created a plan and brainstormed how best to reach people. Please join us this Monday evening to sign up for an outreach packet so you can be better prepared to share membership and store info.
The meeting’s at 6:30 pm Monday, Delridge Branch Library (5423 Delridge Way SW). You can also sign up for a co-op membership online at delridgegrocery.coop.
