Welcome to Spiral Foods!
Let’s have a house party
Gather friends, neighbors around your table
We are hitting the home stretch in preparation to open our market this summer, and The Co-op needs to raise our portion of the capital needed to fund the construction before the bank will loan the rest. As part of the fundraising effort, the Board of Directors set a goal of adding 200 new members by opening. Other co-ops have found house parties to be one of the best ways to boost membership.
We need your help!
As owners of Spiral Foods Co-op, we all have a real stake in the progress and success of this project. YOU are an important and powerful tool in the goal to build our ownership base.
We need you to apply to host a house party to recruit new Member Owners by completing this online form. Make sure you select Host a House Party.
Planning should begin approximately 2 to 4 weeks before the party. Have a potluck, dinner party, wine tasting, or tea and scones. Whatever feels comfortable. Have fun with your friends and neighbors, and help to raise the money needed to open our doors. What could be better!
