Day 116: 365 Grateful, food coop initiative

Over the past few years I have had the pleasure of volunteering with the Manchester Food Coop initiative. As of today we have 923 members…so close to our 1,000 member goal to get this going!! Had a good time volunteering at the Stonyfield 5K.

DIY: I made a shirt (smaller!)

Back in April I got a Manchester Food Coop tshirt by representing MFC in the Stonyfield Farm 5K.

Today I volunteered at the NH for the Holidays Expo at the Radisson to recruit new Owner Members for the Coop.

Yesterday I decided I didn’t want to wear an oversized tshirt to the Expo (but totally wanted to wear the Pea Costume). I didn’t want to turn this awesome Manchester Food Coop tshirt into another night shirt!

Here’s what I did:
