MISSION: The Pacific Island Food Coop/Buyers' Group on Saipan is member-owned and operated, food cooperative which provides access to real food (what others call health food) at reasonable prices (at cost). We feature non-Genetically modified (Non-GMO), preservative-free, sugar-free, wheat-free, MSG-free, gluten-free, pesticide-free, meat-free, environmentally-friendly, sustainable, organic food, as well as bio-degradable, cruelty-free, recyclable household products from individuals and companies who care about our planet and who share a unique view of real health.
If you share the growing view that real health and wellness doesn't come in the form of factory-made, genetically altered things in boxes or cans, or from pills with multiple side-effects but from a return to what's natural, and if you have certain natural products you'd like to order or see on our "virtual shelves", then please join with us! www.pacificislandfoodcoop.org 


Dear member, 
Great meeting on Saturday! 

MEMBERSHIP UPDATE: 
We now have 53 members on our list!



ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM OUR MEMBERS
DANIEL LAMAR - For those interested in making their own
soy milk, you can get a handy table-top SOY MILK MACHINE
from Dr. Lamar.  If you were to order online, the regular retail price 
would be $169 plus shipping.  Daniel's already taken care of 
that, plus gotten a great discount.  He ordered 6, and now has
just  4 left for the bargain price of $115.  (With quarts selling 
for $3 at the local supermarket, this will pay for itself in just
a few uses. Call Daniel at  670 287 7245

DECISIONS AND VOTES
As things develop, these decisions will no doubt change,
but for now, we came to a few decisions at the meeting on Saturday

- how often do we meet?  AS NEEDED FOR NOW, UNTIL
WE HAVE A PROCESS IN PLACE, BUT THEN PERHAPS EVERY TWO WEEKS

- how often do we place orders: PROBABLY EVERY TWO WEEKS
AT A SET TIME EACH WEEK SO MEMBERS CAN PLAN THEIR
BUDGETS


FOR THE RECORD BOOKS:
Lynda Rowe was officially the first member to place
and pay for her order through the Pacific Island Food Coop!
Thanks, Linda for leading the way and setting a bold, adventurous
example for the group! 


NEXT MEETING: Saturday, Oct 28 4:30pm at Ystilo's 
We'll take more orders, and we'll have a computer set up to 
help members place their orders at that time too!
