From Rachie Weisberg ’15 and Co-op kids,
This Monday we will be holding an info session to learn about Wesleyan’s local co-op. The co-op aims to provide direct access for Wesleyan students to fresh, locally grown and produced foods including veggies, fruits, cheese, meat, eggs, dairy, bread, tofu, seitan and granola. Every week these products will be brought straight from the farmers to you. Mmmmm.
The meeting is not required to sign up for the co-op but it is highly recommended as we will be going over many changes of our restructured system including how to pay for the co-op, where to pick up and more!
Where: Shanklin 107
When: Monday 9/8 at 8pm
Event post: F.Book
Cost: Free (the info sesh, not the fresh veggies. Come to find out their price!)
