Happy Holidays!
Thanks everybody to a healthy, delicious, and fun semester. CoreFoods will be shutting down soon for the holiday break, but we'll see you in 2010, when we'll kick off the semester with a very exciting movie screening of BIG RIVER in conjunction with CUFSP. We'll also be sending out a call for board applications! More details to come. In the mean time, have a wonderful and safe break!
