Closed on 7/20 in solidarity with Strike for Black Lives

The co-op will be closed on Monday, 7/20, in solidarity with
Strike For Black Lives.

“July 20th is a day of reckoning. Across the country, workers will rise up to strike for Black lives. Together, we will withhold our most valuable asset — our labor — in support of dismantling racism and white supremacy to bring about fundamental changes in our society, economy and workplaces. Join us in walking out for justice.” https://j20strikeforblacklives.org/

8:46 Pledge
On Monday at 12 p.m. — for 8 minutes, 46 seconds — walk off your job, take a knee, or hold a moment of silence in memory of George Floyd and others whose lives were taken too soon by police violence.

Closed July 4th

We’ll be closed Saturday July 4th, so please get your shopping done the day before and have a safe, tasty, and happy 4th of July.

During this public health crisis, the co-op is offering free home delivery for high-risk individuals, including the elderly, pregnant, and immunocompromised. A few of our working members have volunteered to deliver groceries to those who live within a 1-mile radius of the co-op. We are also offering shoppers the option to pre-order groceries for pickup. If interested, please email produce@4thstreetfoodcoop.org.

Response to COVID-19

The 4th Street Food Co-op is open. We intend to keep serving our community while responding to changing conditions.  We support evidence-based public health measures to flatten the curve of COVID-19’s impact and are paying attention to ordinances from federal, state, and local agencies. 

We have bolstered our hygiene protocols to minimize risk to members and shoppers. To that end, we are limiting the total number of people in the store to four at any one time. We will close to shoppers during cleaning and while we process deliveries, which have doubled in size to meet increased demand. These (and future) measures will likely impact shopping; they’ll also help keep the co-op open. Your understanding is appreciated.

We ask that you do your part in protecting our community.  Our goal is to get shoppers in and out as quickly as possible, so that we may serve more people and decrease person-to-person time:

  • Come prepared with a shopping list, minimize conversation, and have only 1 person from your household do your shopping, when possible. 
  • Use our sink to wash your hands with soap before you shop or work a shift, after eating, using the toilet, or after touching your face.  If someone asks you to wash your hands, please do – we’re in this together. If a skin condition precludes handwashing, take a new pair of disposable gloves and replace as needed to avoid cross-contamination while in the store.
  • Try to leave 6 feet between yourself and others when you’re in the store. You’re welcome to step outside while you wait for your turn at the register; just let us know.
  • Handle your own groceries at the register when shopping.
  • If you need to eat while on shift or shopping, step outside to do so.
  • If you need to sneeze or cough, please do so in your elbow if you do not have a tissue. If you use a tissue, dispose of it in the trash and wash your hands again.

We ask that you do not enter the co-op if you’re unwell, especially if you have a fever, cough or trouble breathing. Local volunteers have organized free shopping and delivery service for those in need. Contact coronacouriers@protonmail.com or https://www.invisiblehandsdeliver.com.

We’ll continue to update information. Feel free to call ahead to make sure we are open or ask what’s in stock at +1 212 674-3623.

Urgent Whole Fennel Seed Recall

Mountain Rose Herbs is voluntarily recalling whole fennel seeds from lot #25031 due to a secondary test indicating the presence of salmonella. If you bought whole fennel seeds after May, you may have purchased a portion of the recalled lot. You can return the whole fennel seeds at the coop for a refund. Please bring a receipt if you have it.

Consequently, we will be out of fennel seeds for awhile. Thank you for your cooperation.
