CMC staff and volunteers are hitting the streets to find out what new products people would like to see in the converted CMC stores! We are going door-to-door to meet neighbors around each of the stores and conduct a brief “consumer preference” survey to find out which fruits and vegetables people would like to see in their local markets.
We also have a whole bunch of exciting, free workshops and healthy cooking demonstrations planned at the stores throughout November and December and we want to personally invite all our neighbors to attend.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO SURVEY THE NEIGHBORHOOD!
It is important that we build up support for the stores for the long-haul so that their new expanded, fresh produce services can thrive. By going door-to-door we will help bring new, loyal customers into the stores as well as provide the store owners with important data on which products are in demand. Join us!
