Tacoma Food Co-op to Vote on Future Location


On Monday, October 25th, the Tacoma Food Co-op will be discussing future plans for a retail location and holding board elections. The membership will vote whether to go forward with a purchase of the Neighborhood Market at 6th and Junett. The terms from owner John Loesch include a two-year deferral of payments for the purchase of the business, except that the Co-op would pay rent on the building.

Potluck and raffles start at 5:30 p.m. Prizes from local businesses will be raffled off for new and existing members who attend the meeting. New memberships will be accepted throughout the evening. For more information on membership visit www.tacomafoodcoop.com. Information booths will be open during the potluck for attendees to learn more about volunteer opportunities, recent co-op accomplishments, finances, storefront options, and more.

The annual business meeting will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Evergreen State College Tacoma Campus (1210 6th Avenue, Tacoma). Child care will be available for a small donation; RSVP is required – email tacomafoodcoop@gmail.com. All are welcome to join in on the conversation. Only members may vote.

Board elections will also be held. Persons interested in running for open board positions should contact current Board President, Amber Englund, at amber@tacomafoodcoop.com by October 20.
