The South Suburban Food Co-op will hold its annual meeting from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, at St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 18850 Riegel Road, Homewood. Organizers suggest using the side entrance on Idlewild Lane. 

In addition to co-op members, anyone in the community who is interested in learning more about the co-op is welcome to attend. 

The co-op’s new store at 1941 Ridge Road in downtown Homewood opened Sept. 21, and the organization has had a booth all summer at the Homewood Farmers Market.

The event begins with a potluck supper from 6 to 7 p.m., so organizers ask that everyone who attends bring a dish. Dinner will be followed by a business meeting.

“We especially look forward to interacting with those folks we’ve met at the Farmers’ Market as well as the many visitors who have stopped by the store and those who are just interested in our concept,” the co-op board said in an email invitation to the event.

The business meeting will include electing new members to the board of directors.  Anyone who is interested in serving on the board should contact a current board member, including Jim Armstrong, John Franzese, Gary Friedlund, Barbara Gomoll, Maryse Mazon, Matt Tirpak and Richard Vilmur. The organization hopes to add two additional members to the board.
