BCP is July's Friend of Earth Fare

BCP is the "Friend of Earth Fare" this month. That means every time someone uses their own bags at the stores, BCP gets a donation. This really adds up.

There will also be a cookout at the stores on the 18th, and a Tomato Fest on the 25th. ALL the proceeds from these events go to BCP.

So here's how you can help raise funds for our important work:
-- Go to Earthfare all month and bring your own bags
-- Go to the Cookout on the 18th and buy a tasty, healthy, low cost lunch.
-- Go to the Tomato Fest on the 25th and buy some 'maters
-- Volunteer at our table for a few hours on one of those days

Volunteers are REALLY needed 7/18 and 7/25, from noon to 6 (you can do all or part of this time slot) . Contact Katherine for more info on this.
