If you are getting this message as an email, YOU ORDERED SOMETHING that needs to be picked up (each cycle a few people don’t realize they’ve ordered because we don’t use a check-out step).
Some quick info on distribution:
1. Specifics on on times and locations for all our sites are available with this link. Note that we’ve moved our Ames distribution to Wheatsfield Co-op. We’ll be in a room on the back side of their store, so if you are picking up there you need to enter the driveway on the south side of their building.
NOTE: IF YOU ARRIVE BEFORE THE SCHEDULED START TIME, OUR VOLUNTEERS WON’T BE READY. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND BE PATIENT.
2. Our alternative pick up time will be from 10:30 to noon on Saturday, Oct. 10. If you need to use this alternative pick up time, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. We can accept EBT cards for payment ONLY AT OUR Franklin Plaza site. If you are an EBT member and are picking up at another location, please send an email to email@example.com so we can arrange for processing your payment
Final note: It’s a good idea to check to be sure your pick-up site is correct. You can access your invoice by logging in, going to the shopping tab, and click “view in-process invoice”. If it’s not right, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
