Seeking one or two additional volunteers to help with the Lincoln pickup site located at Indigo Bridge in the Haymarket.
Ideally, volunteers would be expected to work every third or fourth pickup cycle and perhaps a last-minute substitution in case of illness or emergency. The pick-up window is from 4:30 to 6:30, but volunteers should try to be at Indigo Bridge around 4:00 in order to set up. One volunteer per pick-up day is the norm, unless there are a large number of orders (typically around Thanksgiving).
The word is getting out about the Nebraska Food Cooperative and the local food movement! Since the start of the year, new memberships have exploded with a 300 percent increase. So what does that mean? We need more micro-sites to staff customer pick up.
Two sites are newly in action as of the February order cycle: Beatrice and Unadilla. And two more sites will be open very soon: Hastings and Lincoln in the Farmers Union parking lot. As interest increases, we plan on expanding in even more markets! So spread the word. NFC is coming your way!
Congratulations, Jennifer Nichols, for signing up as NFC’s 2000th member! Joining as a visitor and hitting the jackpot, Jennifer received an upgrade to a one year, non-voting membership, a $40 value. When you see Jennifer around, be sure to congratulate her on hitting 2000!
