LEAVE NO TRACE principles for food:

1. Re-pack everything into reusable containers (BEST!) OR plan to take all wrappers home with you.
2. MINIMIZE GLASS - re-bottle juices in plastic containers. Don't fill to the top, freeze before leaving, and then pack frozen juices in coolers to serve as ice.
3. Plan on finger foods whenever possible. Tostada shells, breads, etc. make good edible plates!

Hi there, hungry people...

Here's how the ONE TIME bulk food order at cost from the Red Barn Natural Grocery will work best:

Order deadline August 4th -
Eugene: turn order forms into Cynthia at Red Barn by August 1st.
PDX: PDX coordinator (who???) should turn individual forms into Cynthia by August 1st.

No exceptions PLEASE - this has a LOT of logistics.

Order pick-up - Orders can be picked up DYOD weekend (Maybe Thursday - but maybe not...) and after. This means that you PDXers could pick items up on the way home OR make arrangements to have someone bring it up to you.

ALL individual orders should be picked up NO LATER than August 18th. Please don't leave anything unclaimed - it's hard on the store.

Orders are paid for on pick-up. 15% re-stocking fee for anything you don't pick up.

1. Order forms and catalogs are available at the meetings. Prices will be about 5-10% less than catalog price - more off for supplements/personal care items.

2. Fill out an order form - you MUST fill out all highlighted areas.

3.Check quantities and item numbers carefully for mistakes; there's no time to re-order or fix errors.

4. VISA, Food Stamps, check with guaranty card, or cash accepted - pay individually per order at the store.

5. No deposit required for our TRUSTWORTHY Burning Man Campers

6. Pricing ON THIS ONE MAIN ORDER is at Red Barn's cost (subject to change without notice). Other case orders can follow, and will still be discounted, but not this much.

7. Items may be out of stock, or not show up on time, so BE PREPARED to go to the store and pick up alternatives if they don't come in. MOST things always show up just fine.

8. You need to order full cases (or eaches) AS THEY APPEAR IN THE CATALOG.

9. If you want to split a case with someone, do it AFTER the order is picked up and paid for.
