Delridge Produce Co-op is now Delridge Grocery and is seeking new members

Delridge Produce Cooperative, the group that's been pushing to get some relief for the "food desert" along Delridge Way SW is changing their name as they move closer to creating a physical location. They are now the Delridge Grocery. In a note to followers they said, "Our steering committee believes that this name better represents what we will be selling (full range of grocery items) and reflects the community's vision of having a grocery store in Delridge."

They are also seeking new members to power the effort and are holding a Membership "Launch Lunch" event this month to get people to buy a membership, meet other future Delridge Grocery member/owners, share thoughts about the new store (opening June 2014), and... eat lunch. The event will also feature a raffle. That event is Saturday, March 23 from 11am to 1pm at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW and will be free.

They are asking those interested to RSVP on Facebook: http://bit.ly/dgmemberlaunch or by responding to via email to Delridge Produce Cooperative delridgeproducecoop@gmail.com .
