Subject: Food Co-op at City of the Sun

-----  Food Co-op at City of the Sun  -----

  To create & maintain a local distribution point
  for buying natural & organic foods in Columbus,
  with possible expansion into a storefront,
  commercial kitchen, cafe, etc

To get things started, we have a delivery from Tucson
Cooperative Warehouse to City of the Sun every 4 weeks.
December will be our 6th order from TCW... See below for
how to order, and current status.

For more choices and lower prices, we'll also be doing
business with other distributors & wholesalers when our
volume is high enough.  If you have suggestions or requests,
please email <vansprouts at mac dot com> with subject "food co-op".

Thank you for helping make this happen here!
