IT'S A BIG DILL!
Cooperators, our movement is growing. In just over a month, 89 of our neighbors have responded to the call for community ownership by joining the co-op-- more than six times the number we'd typically see in that timeframe, bringing us to over 1425+ active owner accounts! This additional equity, new energy, and growing support will bolster our efforts to build a more just and sustainable food system, driven by an expanded store.
Night owls & early birds, take note! Our regular store hours will resume on October 1st: 9am-9pm daily through the fall and winter months.
PICKLE PEOPLE, join us on Tuesday 9/23, 6:30-9pm for our Annual Owner's Meeting! Grab your groceries early -- the store will close at 6pm to allow our staff to attend.
Come celebrate five years of cooperation, get up to speed with reports from our GM and Board Prez, cast your 2014 ballot, and participate in an ownership feedback session. Begyle Brewing will hook us up with a keg, Cole's Bar has wine covered, and there'll be noshes from some of our favorite folks: The Great American Cheese Collection, Bot Bakery, Seedling Fruit, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, Upton's Naturals, and Vallarta Hummus. Woohooo!
Pickle People, the polls are open! Get your democracy on and VOTE in our Annual Election, now through September 23.
The co-op model replaces the corporate model of 'one dollar, one vote' with 'one person, one vote,' allowing our ownership to elect a Board of Directors who'll give voice to our values, and to ratify amendments to our bylaws. Check out our Annual Election page to read up on the candidates and proposed bylaw changes, then cast your ballot online!
This Sunday, September 7th!
11am-4pm. Logan & Milwaukee.
We've teamed up with Comfort Station Logan Square's Potluck Series and a dozen community partners to throw a big, end-of-summer, community-building party. Join us! Feel free to bring a snack to share, or just swing by to enjoy FREE locally sourced (veggie)burgers, brats, and freshly harvested vegetables. There'll be music, lawn games, relay races, yoga, a children's reading corner, chair massages, and many more opportunities to have a good time on one of the last summer weekends. Check out the event on facebook and spread the word.
