CHANGES COMING TO THIS WEB SITE IN MAY
During May, this web site is being transitioned from an actively maintained site to a static basic information page about the Food Mill Coop, designed to be only updated very infrequently. This work has only just started, so this web page will remain under construction for much of the month of May.

Change in Sharing

The Sharing List has been discontinued as of today.  You should now begin using the instructions which have been e-mailed to Coop members on how to use the UNFI web site to manage sharing (it's easy to do); these are the same instructions that were distributed at the April Coop potluck and at the May 8th delivery. These instructions also tell you how to download the price lists (including Specials) from the UNFI web site. If needed, you can download those instructions here. In addition, a Coop member (Travis) is developing a more convenient method of sharing using Google Docs, but it is not ready for use yet. This is all part of the transfer of jobs to other Coop members, as the Coop's secretary ends his tenure with the June 5th delivery. To insure a smooth transition, these changes being done gradually throughout the month of May.

Other changes coming to this web site: Most of the subsidiary pages on this web site will be dropped. Price lists will no longer be posted, although June Specials will remain posted here.  A new page will be developed listing who to contact for various Coop needs (e.g., ordering, questions, updating contact info, etc.). Expect announcements of other changes by e-mail, and they will be posted here.

**Special Order Procedure for Sharing "M3" Products
UNFI's "M3" code means that UNFI sells that product by the unit, but requires a minimum order of 3 units. But UNFI's software does not allow "M3" products to be split. So here's how the Food Mill Coop gets around that:
(a) To share an "M3" product, e-mail your request to our orderers at riponfoodmill@gmail.com. It will be listed on the UNFI web site as being ordered by the Coop. HOWEVER!!! . . .
(b) do NOT add an "M3" product that you want to share to your on-line Order Cart; this is because . . .
(c) when shared (i.e., the minimum order of 3 units has been met), our orderers (not the individual members) will order the "M3" product on behalf of the Coop. Members listed above as sharing it are agreeing to buy it as an "extra" at the delivery.
(d) Once the minimum order of 3 units has been met, additional quantities may still be requested, following this procedure.
