NewBurghFoodCo has flourished into a large group that held its first organizational meeting last Sunday. Founders, Noel and Nancy Thompson are quite excited of the progress their group has made at bringing high quality food to residents of the City of Newburgh and beyond.
“Our first Organizational Meeting was held in March 2013 at The Heritage Center, attended by twenty-eight people and the Mayor of Newburgh dropped by to wish us well. We now have over three hundred and thirty-eight members who have ordered from the more than four thousand items available. The group has grown to be a community that includes retired people on tight budgets, families with mouths to feed, people who are vegan and people who choose to buy that special item that is affordable through “Wholeshare” pricing. We are thankful for the Calvary Presbyterian Church for accommodating the deliveries and pick-ups. The next twelve months look bright for Newburgh and NewburghFoodCo.”
Noel Thompson is a food distribution expert formerly of GreatFood.com, Dean and Deluca, Newmarket Distribution, and The Silver Palate. Members enjoy being a part of a community of people: some food professionals, some amateur cooks, all of whom care about food and related food issues. They share recipes and information about food and some times free samples of products or their own cooking! A group of members have started Hudson Valley Hour Exchange and have been cooking soup together for a local soup kitchen! To join visit http://www.wholeshare.com/join/1958. All are welcome.
