GVOCSA Distribution Information
LOCATION: Abundance Cooperative Market at 62 Marshall Street in Rochester.
PICK UP: BE SURE YOU KNOW YOUR DISTRIBUTION DAY. Check your name and pickup day on the membership list in the newsletter; if there are any changes or corrections, call or e-mail Dave Fergusson IMMEDIATELY ( ). Start and end dates for distribution are published on the home page under "Important Dates".
PICK UP Times:
How to Pick Up Produce
Check in at the full share or partial share station (whichever applies). Make sure your name is checked off. Bring your own bag for veggies. Bring extra bags if you have them: paper or plastic grocery bags - reuse, recycle, reuse. Look for notices about bulk orders, picnics, contract payments, special orders, other events, at stations near pick up. Pick up your vegetables as directed by the signs on the boxes.
If you cannot pick up your share do one of the following:
Please be aware that there are never any guarantees regarding next day pick-up. We do our best, but things happen. Your phone message could be garbled or lost. Somebody could take your share by mistake. Fortunately, this does not happen often.
CONTRACT PAYMENT CHECKS (made out to GVOCSA) may be put in the payment box at distribution.
If you have ordered eggs, chickens or dairy products, check the appropriate stations for your orders. Be sure to tell anyone picking up for you to get these items.
WORKING AT DISTRIBUTION:
Check the distribution work schedule in the May newsletter for the dates you are scheduled to work. Arrive an hour before distribution starts and plan to stay until the end of distribution and the area is cleaned. A distribution captain will be there to get things started and organize breaking down food into individual units. YOU MUST find your replacement if you cannot work your shift! Notify the distribution scheduler about any changes; we need to know who to expect. Note: if you need to change your farm work schedule, contact the farm work scheduler (see Scheduling), this may be a different person.
BULK ORDERS: You may choose to order extra vegetables for the next week from the bulk order list on a table near pick up; pay when you order. There will also be a list of probable share vegetables for the next week, so you won't have double of what you wanted. Bulk order checks are made out to Peacework Farm; see the newsletter for more information on BULK ORDERS. If you placed a bulk order the previous week, REMEMBER TO PICK UP YOUR ORDER. Items not picked up will go to the Food Cupboard/Homeless Shelter.
