LOVE in Action
Our friends at LOVE OUT LOUD are planning the: Christmas for the City (CFTC) event, for Saturday, Dec. 19, 4-8pm, beginning at the WS Fairgrounds…
This year the CFTC, will involve three components:
o DRIVE-THROUGH: starting at the WS Fairgrounds cars proceed through stationary “floats”—or more accurately: “encouragement stations!”— hosted by churches, nonprofits and community partners to “love on the city” in a multiple ways.
o DRIVE-IN: then, a simple, brief (20-25 minute) and deeply meaningful service at the drive-in movie set-up on the Midway streamed live, with a prayer wall for cards as cars exit.
o DRIVE-ON: and send attendees out to other opportunities that same night, such as various drive-through nativity scenes and other activities happening on location at various churches and community partner sites.
Need more information, see the CFTC website http://www.christmasforthecity.com
Sowing the Seeds of Cooperation
Our FOOD PHARMACY is open...
Utilizing the recently opened Harvest Market eCommerce site, SHARE has started its Food Pharmacy Program. This program provides subsidized, healthy food as prescriptions to patients with chronic illnesses such as hypertension, Type II diabetes and heart disease.
To secure a prescription, all one needs to do is visit our partners at the UNITED HEALTH CENTERS, 2101 Peters Creek Parkway, Suites 16-19, Winston-Salem, NC.
Constructing our Future
1. This morning the Reinvestment Fund announced that it will award SHARE a $200,000 grant. The fund, through its capacity for the Healthy Food Financing Initiative at USDA Rural Business-Cooperative Service, will provide funding for the needed equipment for the anchor store; https://www.investinginfood.com/impact/.
2. Work on our 635 site (our anchor store in the West Salem Shopping Center) has begun. Demolition is being completed and construction is being scheduled.
3. SHARE is excited to announce the hiring of our new, permanent, General Manager. Barnaby Urich-Rintz. Barnaby, who comes to us from Olympia, WA, has been in the food industry for many years. He has an interest in food justice and the work necessary to build trust among individuals from diverse neighborhoods. We are pleased to have Barnaby on our team.
SHARE is proud to announce the hiring of our new, eCommerce Coordinator. Her name is Nicole Little. Nicole is from Winston-Salem and is skilled in performance improvement, solving problems, and prioritizing heavy workloads. Nicole has experience in personnel recruitment, personnel selection and training. We are pleased to have Nicole on our team.
4. In the short time since we began selling groceries on-line, we have produced more than $6,000 in sales. As we continue to expand our grocery offerings, we're excited to see more customers shop with us...
5. Last week SHARE was approved to immediately begin to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) benefits.
6. In this up-coming week we will continue to petition the County Commissioners - Forsyth County - to provide the final contribution needed to open our anchor store.
In the words of our friend Peter Schlachte, “As excited and proud as we are, we didn't spend the whole month celebrating—there's tasks to be done: food to stock on our shelves, grants to apply for, and a whole grocery store to build.”
Our next task is the big one: opening the full-service brick-and-mortar location for the Harvest Market.
So, how can you help? In the past few weeks SHARE applied for three more food grants. In the coming weeks, we hope to hear back from any of the opportunities for which we have applied; but in the meantime, we need your support! If you are able, donate to SHARE, or shop online from the Harvest Market to support our mission of ending food insecurity in Forsyth County!
Your friends at,
SHARE Cooperative of Winston-Salem
