Sowing the Seeds of Cooperation
As this summer began, we at SHARE promised that we would roll out our online food sales by summer's end. August has been a month of quiet, determined action to ensure that we keep our promise.
Now, we can proudly and officially announce that after four years of effort, SHARE will begin selling food online in September. This wouldn’t have been possible without the generous and loving support of the Winston-Salem community, nor without the dedicated, tireless work of SHARE’s co-founders, Board of Directors, and volunteers. We thank everyone for all that they have done.
Foundations for the Fall
Exactly what has SHARE been doing in August to prepare for our online food sales? We've expanded into new retail space, we've applied for increased funding, and we've set up our website for online buying.
Recently, SHARE staff acquired the 661-663 Peters Creek Parkway addresses in West Salem Shopping Center, just around the corner from our nonprofit office. We've since upfitted the space with a check-out lane, store shelves, refrigeration, and PPE to keep all employees and customers safe.
To shop, you can go online to www.harvestmarket.store, browse our items, and place an order for pick-up from our retail space. We're starting off small, with 100 staple items available for sale, but as we get more comfortable with the system (and as you get more comfortable with us!), we'll expand our selection and we'll institute our delivery services too.
With our online sales, we're introducing the Harvest Market to the Winston-Salem community and we're proving that it's both possible and necessary to open a grocery store in a food desert. We're proud of what August produced; we're excited for what September holds; and we're not done yet!
