Over 4000 volunteer hours have been logged since the inception of the co-op.Saturday May 21, 2016 marked the last day that the group used the facilities at the Wesley United Church in Pembroke as their distribution hub.

The move will also see a change in the monthly delivery day from Saturday to Tuesday evening.
