Friday Emergency Food Co-op at Buffa's!
EMERGENCY FOOD CO-OP
OK, folks, you have food, but no electricity. We have people to feed and hardly any food left!
Let's use your food to feed people instead of throwing it out!
Here is how our emergency food co-op works:
IF YOU HAVE FOOD THAT NEEDS TO GET USED:
1). Bring it in.
2). Tell us how much you want for yourself or your family, and our cooks will cook it for you.
3). You give our server some cash for our cook (and they will see our cooks get ALL of it.)
4). We will share what's left with others.
IF YOU HAVE NO FOOD TO SHARE:
1). Find out what we have. Be patient. It's crowded and the list will always be changing.
2). Tell the server what you want.
3). Give the server some cash for the cook. They will make sure the cook gets ALL of it.
