Week 12 -- Put a Fork in It
As our community of GOOD eaters continues to grow, so does the fleet to support that community. The newest addition to the GFC team -- a forklift. The distribution team's backs are very happy to have it aboard. I still claim that a large part of the decision was so that Stefan could learn to drive a forklift. But with, literally, tons of food prepared and loaded each week for member distribution, the forklift is a thing of magical wonder. Here's what you get to put your fork in for Week 12:

The loaf that was missed two weeks ago will be made up for on the last distribution day. This is the baker Keith’s idea to help make the bread last a little beyond the end of distribution!
