Can we, your customers, shop For You, the workers? Where do you need to go? Maybe one of us also needs to make a run there, too. We could fetch your (lightbulbs, tylenol, etc) and drop it in your car trunk for you? Just trying to think of ways to lower your risk, reduce your exposure....
"You guys are straight up amazing. Thank you so much for all the care and thoughtfulness you put into your strategy for this moment. I’m grateful for the clarity of communication, which I can only assume extends out from a long line of of team members “holding hands,” working together and doing a mega service to us all, getting us access to the good good (veggiessss and local deliciousness) in a good good good good way. Lots of goodness y’all are doing. Thank you." -Gretie Stay up-to-date with the latest Co-op News at: https://openharvest.coop/blog/
Dear Open Harvest Community, Thank you so much for your continued support and gratitude as we work hard to remain open and provide consistent food access for our community during this time of crisis. CURBSIDE PICK-UP Our curbside pickup service is live! We expect the number of orders to steadily increase in the next few weeks, so your patience is appreciated as we figure out how to scale up with the demand. You can place your orders online and they will be available to pick-up the following day, Monday – Friday between noon – 6 pm. APRIL SEED PROGRAM RECIPIENT: SOUTHERN HEIGHTS FOOD FOREST This month, round-up your grocery bill at the co-op to benefit Southern Heights Food Forest! The Southern Heights Food Forest is the first of its kind in the nation. The 2-acre space in South Lincoln is Nebraska’s first publicly accessible food forest. In addition to the forest guilds, the project includes a full-sized, research-based outdoor classroom for kids of all ages, an extensive pollinator garden, and over 50 community garden plots. The Southern Heights Food Forest includes a variety of elements that are changing the way we eat, play, and interact, both with each other as a community and with the landscape within which we live. STAFF SAFETY: YOU CAN HELP As confirmed cases continue to increase in Lincoln, it’s important more than ever that we are taking every precaution to protect each other. I implore you, if you are sick, please, please, please do not come to our store (check out our curbside pickup service instead!). We are taking extreme precautions to keep our store sanitized in order to keep staff and customers safe. Therefore, if we notice that someone looks sick or is exhibiting obvious symptoms of COVID-19, they will be asked to leave. Here are a few more things that we ask of our customers at this time: --Practice social distancing by staying 6’ from your neighbor; give staff plenty of space If possible, shop alone --Please respect our request for our high risk only shopping hours (daily from 9 am – 10 am) --Do not touch product you don’t intend to buy and utilize the disposable gloves that are strategically placed throughout the store --Understand that we are doing our best to provide products; we are managing unprecedented purchasing restrictions and a high level of out of stocks THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU I am really proud of our co-op’s resilience so far. I know we can get through this together and I ask for the support of the entire cooperative community. Please choose to do your grocery shopping with Open Harvest; Be kind and patient with each other; and most importantly, please thank our staff when you see them (or use this form).
