By pooling our resources, we can access better stuff for less $$. We are already doing group purchases of fruit trees. How about natural foods? How about chicken food? The Azure Standard truck delivers bulk foods to a Playa Vista drop-off point. Group needs a $50 minimum order to participate.
Ways you can help the group-purchasing idea get started:
1. Coordinate: Become the coordinator who accumulates, posts, and calculates the orders.
2. Pickup: pick up the group order at the truck in Playa Vista, bring it to Holy Nativity, and help sort it by purchaser.
3. Spread the word: Get neighbors involved. It builds community connections!
4. Participate: Eat healthier for less $$
