CSF Funded Bulk Buying Store Looking for Pre-Launch Feedback

Last spring the CSF awarded a grant to the ASUW Student Food Cooperative Bulk Buying Store and they are currently in their exciting pre-launch phase. The store will be located in the HUB and be stocked with a wide variety of locally sourced and affordable, non-perishable goods. They'd like student input regarding what goods to stock and hours to operate in order to serve the needs of every UW community member and make the bulk buying store an accessible space for the entire campus. Plus they're looking for volunteers!
