Bronx Food Co-op Updates

A few updates from the two food co-ops we know about here in the BoogieDown:

1) It's your last chance to sign up for the winter share of the Norwood Food Co-op... the deadline's been extended a bit and anyone interested must get a deposit of $50 over to them by Friday morning. The total cost for the season is $260 and the full balance is due November 7th. Click here to visit their website for more info on how to register.

2) As we've previously mentioned, the South Bronx Food Coop is moving to their own new retail location at 3103 Third Avenue and 158th Street. Their grand opening on November 22nd is right around the corner and they're looking for volunteers to help get the space ready. Although they do not currently have electricity, they promise a generator will be providing lights. They're looking for help Wednesdays and Fridays from 6 to 9pm and Saturdays and Sundays 12 to 6pm. Click here to visit their website for more info, or send and email to sbfc.inc@gmail.com.

Although you won't find valet parking for your bike as you would at the Park Slope Food Co-op (true story, not even kidding), you're sure to get the freshest produce at the best price in both these Bronx food co-ops.
