Here is a sharecast for our second distribution of the season. Pick up your vegetables in the Parish Hall of the Church of the Redeemer (30-14 Crescent Street near 30th Avenue). See below for details about what you can expect this evening. 

Here are a few notes before you get to the church this evening:

1. Distribution is from 5:30-8:00pm. You must be finished picking up your vegetables by 8pm. Please get to the church no later than 7:45pm.

2. PLEASE do not walk through the sanctuary when entering the church. Members should enter through one of the open red doors that lead directly to the parish hall.

3. Plan on bringing your own grocery bags to distribution each week. We do not provide bags or boxes for your veggies.

4. You and/or your share partners should have received an email confirming your volunteer assignments. If you did not receive that email -- or if you need change your volunteer schedule, please contact volunteer@harvestastoria.com.  You can also adjust your volunteer schedule directly on SignUp.com. The CSA is entirely run by volunteers and we count on all members to contribute over the course of the season.

Thanks to all our morning volunteers for unloading the vegetables and setting up the church. I look forward to seeing the rest of our members at the distribution this evening!
