Teen Health Fair this Friday
The co-op is sponsoring (with Health Corps) a healthfair for
teenagers this Friday from 10:30 - 12:30 am. The fair will be at the
Urban Assembly School, 701 St. Anns Ave.
Help Needed! We are looking for someone to donate (or put on extended loan) a small table and some chairs to provide a bit of sitting room for members to enjoy a cup of coffee or have lunch. We will change the orientation of the juice bar so that it faces the front window and frees up some space in the store for this. If anyone has a chair or a card table or something that might work, send Lily an email atLily.Acunzo@gmail.com!
We are also looking for someone to donate a juicer to make our Juice Bar dreams come to fruition! If you have a spare or one that you don't use anymore let Lily know and we can arrange to pick it up. Thanks!

The South Bronx Food Cooperative(SBxFC) is a green shopping alternative to the profit-oriented commercial food markets found in the Bronx. Founded and operated by committed residents, the SBxFC is dedicated to making a difference in the community by working together to provide healthy and affordable food to all who want it.
The South Bronx Food cooperative carries a wide variety of products, including local, organic and conventionally grown produce; pasture-raised, grass-fed and free-range meats and poultry; bulk grains, sugars, spices and pastas; fair-trade coffees and chocolate; environmentally safe cleaning supplies, and much more. All of this plus a selection of standard supermarket items makes the SBxFC a one-stop shopping destination. Sales are brisk at the SBxFC and inventory is replenished often ensuring that the products we sell are as fresh as possible.
