Remember tomorrow is pick-ups for ALL SHARES–this includes beer, kombucha, fish and soap, along with the usual veggies and fruit. All pickups are October 12th at Sunnyside Community Services from 5-8pm.

**Also remember when you pick up you can enter the 50/50 raffle. This benefits our Subsidized Share Program. Basically if you win you get half the raffle cash, and the subsidy gets the other half to help people in our neighborhood access food shares!

Fruit shares are a bag of bosc pears, and cortland & jonagold apples.
