    Board Meeting

    The Board meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month. The regular place of board meetings is the Jamie Black Room at the main branch of Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, 325 Michigan St., Toledo, OH 43604. The next meeting will be on April 23, 2014. All members welcome.

    Label-the-Truth Meeting February 18th, 7:30 p.m.

    Our Board President, Sean Nestor, and General Manager, Lisa Blake, are on the steering committee of Label-the-Truth Ohio.

We're forwarding this announcement for those of you who are interested in getting informed and getting involved.

    The Co-op does not involve itself in partisan politics, but it DOES promote health and well-being of the individual and community through education about food issues, and, of course, always offering the best food at the best prices.
