Your Community Food Store

Thursday, December 1, 2011

Momentum is currently building with the development of a local Food Co-op in the Queenston Street/ Downtown neighbourhood. Being able to access nutrious, wholesome, local food is difficult if not impossible for many residents living in this community. The Food Co-op is looking to meet those needs and wants to know what you think?

What do you look for when you choose a grocery store?

What types of foods do you prefer?

Would you be interested in becoming a member of a Food Co-op?

For more information on the Food Co-op check out their community blog.

Calling All Poets!

Friday, April 1, 2011

We are looking for a phrase or quote that will give focus and direction to our mural. Two themes that we want to work within are "New Beginnings/Fresh Starts" and "People helping People/Building Together." If anyone can come up with an inspiring phrase using these themes that would be very helpful. We want something that will provoke creativity and an image. Leave a comment with your ideas for a slogan, a slogan for the Queenston Street community to grab hold of!

We look forward to working with you further and bringing new colour to the walls of Queenston.
