As of yesterday October 8, we have officially reached our stretch goal! When we first began our campaign our hopes were high, and we knew that the London and zero-waste community would do their absolute best to support us in filling a growing community need: a package-free grocery store. But as the campaign began and continued the momentum was incredible not only did we hit our first goal in 9 days, but we've now hit our stretch goal as well! Not only do we have 740+ monetary supporters, but the willingness and readiness within the community to spread the word and share our message was invaluable to our success. We are overwhelmed once again with your support and we cannot thank you enough for everything!
We have always made access to programming and education a priority here. It has been hard with COVID, but we won’t let a pandemic stop us from building community! Our workshops and educational events are really the heart and soul of this social enterprise and have been since our very beginning. Any additional funds we receive will accelerate and expand our community education efforts, such as:
👉 Tool Library
👉 Food Canning & Preserving
👉 Repair Café
👉 Composting and waste reduction workshops
👉 Nutrition and Food Literacy
👉 Cooking Classes
We have 6 days to make this happen, so if you haven’t shared our campaign or donated but were planning on it, now is when we need your support the most!
You will still be receiving store credit for every dollar you donate, along with all of the other amazing perks. More information on the campaign can be found at www.reimaginegroceries.ca
Thanks again for all your support! Let us know if you have any questions or feedback for us - we love hearing from you, and can’t wait to see you in person soon!!
