On Wednesday, May 6, Ambler Food Co-op will host Judy Wicks for the second event in its "Food for Thought” Educational Series. The Co-op continues to organize the community towards owning and operating their own full-service grocery store in Ambler. Ms. Wicks, a proponent of small businesses, will speak to the positive impact that local enterprises have on their economy and their communities. Ms. Wicks is the former owner of the White Dog Café in Philadelphia’s University City, which features fresh, local food.
As Ambler Food Co-op continues to grow and develop as a local member-owned business, it remains committed to sourcing its produce and other grocery items from local suppliers. This focus on where food comes from and how it nourishes us, our families and our communities is built into the Co-op’s mission statement, along with a concern for the local economy.
This “Food for Thought” event is free and open to all members as well as the general public and will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Ambler at Ridge and Butler Avenues on Wednesday May 6, 2015, starting at 6:30 p.m. There will be time for refreshments, mingling, information sharing and the opportunity to become a member-owner of the Co-op. Ms. Wicks will be speaking and taking questions from 7 to 8 pm. The evening will conclude with a book-signing and purchasing opportunity of her memoir, “Good Morning Beautiful Business.”
