Here are today’s Grassroots-Grows-Capacity Action Steps:

PLACE: St. Sophia’s Greek Orthodox Church
440 Whitehall Road
Albany, NY
CALLED FOR BY: Member-owner petitioners

Final arrangements are being worked out with the HWFC board of directors and the GRC and cannot be released until then.

This is only 14 days away, the Monday night after Thanksgiving.  Please make every effort to attend.

Member-owners: please be sure your snail mail address with HWFC is accurate & current and that your member work hours are current so that you are eligible to vote on Monday, November 30th. Member-owners may donate hours to other member-owners; please arrange for this through HWFC (518-482-2667), if needed.

Member-owners: please do everything in your power to become informed prior to the emergency Special Membership Meeting. Read postings on this website every day (and please re-read past posts); send your friends here; read e-mails which come from the board; talk to your friends, family, fellow staff, & colleagues who are HWFC member-owners.

For updates, join our email list of member-owners:

Once details are finalized, all emergency Special Membership Meeting materials provided by us, should be available on the HWFC website:

More than ever, we need an engaged and informed group of voting member-owners to thoughtfully consider the future direction of our locally-owned & locally-controlled food co-operative.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead

Grassroots Action: One HWFC member-owner individual, family, and employee at a time …we can reach every HWFC member-owner if we ALL work it
Build Capacity: If everybody does their little bit (or a bigger bit if they can),
we build our capacity day-by-day
Have faith: It simply works!
YOU are the PR: Be factual, be calm, don’t attack anyone personally, and please do be impassioned about saving our member-owned, locally-owned & controlled co-operative!

This is co-operative, in action!
