Annual Co-op Member Meeting @ Juniper Workantile

BisMan Community Food Coop Annual Meeting
Thursday, October 25 @ 6 pm
Juniper Workantile @ 122 N. 4th Street

Dear members,

Please join us to celebrate the coop and get updates on all the great things happening at your store. Cookies and beverages will be served.

For the board election process this year, we only received one letter of intent for three open seats. The candidate is current Board Secretary Dale Wetzel. Please visit the website, www.bismanfoodcoop.com to view his bio under About / Board of Directors.

Because we have less candidates than open seats, the election committee has decided to forego online voting this year in favor of a paper ballot only, to be held during the annual meeting.

Questions on the voting process can be directed to the election committee chair, Kevin Martin, at kevin.martin@bartwest.com.

Have a great fall season and we hope to see you at the member meeting on October 25th.


The Election Committee

American Indian Food Tasting Event
4:00 PM16:00

American Indian Food Tasting Event

Have you ever eaten a dragonfruit?
What about an ugli fruit?
Do you know what a kumquat tastes like?

DIABESITY (Diabetes and obesity) is the leading cause of death among American Indian people. Our traditional Native diet consisted of plants and proteins without high sugar and fat content. The changes in our diet and our sedentary lifestyle have had a major impact on our health. Diseases like smallpox and measles were a threat to us in the past, brought to us in the form of blankets. Today, diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and cancer are a threat to our population, brought to us in foods like soda pop, energy drinks, fast-food, and highly-processed and microwavable meal items.

BUT the world is full of things we may have never had the opportunity to try. Foods that taste good and are healthy for us! THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY to try new foods and new foods cooked in healthy, delicious ways that you can try easily at home. Each hour of this event will feature a brief speaker and a new round of items to taste test!

The event will also feature a FREE GIFT for all participants and DOOR PRIZES throughout, including KitchenAid Cooking Sets, kitchen accessories, a Ninja Kitchen System, and GRAND PRIZE KitchenAid mixer!
