We're Official!

We are now officially a committee!


Thanks to all of the attendees at last night's General Meeting who brought up great discussion points and voted us in as a committee. We're excited to get the chance to serve the PSFC membership in this area. We look forward to putting together a diverse committee to help with this work.

Now, how do you join? Good question!

In the near future, we'll be posting a call for applicants for the committee both here and in the Linewaiter's Gazette. In the meantime, we'll be having some discussions with both staff and other committees about the best way to get the information we'll have back out to PSFC members. Some good points were raised during the GM with regards to how the information will be available to the PSFC membership. Product lists? Shelf labeling? General information on what certain terms mean? Online component? Product reference binders? We want to make sure we're pulling in committee members who are suited…

(Tues 3/29 @7pm!) Vote for the Animal Welfare Committee at the General Meeting!

We're finally on the General Meeting agenda for a vote! This vote will decide whether this committee will be formed for the PSFC!

This means if enough people raise their hands for us at the General Meeting this Tuesday, 3/29, we will become a reality and be able to serve the PSFC community! (You can even attend for workslot credit if you sign up in advance!)

Why an Animal Welfare Committee?

Ever walked into the co-op with the assumption that all personal care items and household goods we carry are not tested on animals?

Ever assumed our meat/dairy conforms to specific care standards across the board?

Surprised to find out that's not always the case?

Come on down to the General Meeting and vote for us!
