  • For those of you who missed the April Monthly meeting this past Thursday regarding Camilla- Emporio di Comunità, Bologna's first food coop, don't miss the opportunity to see the documentary Food Coop playing at via Galliera on May 7th.  This documentary outlines the history of Park Slope Coop in New York, from which Camilla and many cooperatives around the world take their inspiration. Thank you to those members who came out and shared their energy and enthusiasm with our guest speaker Giovanni Notarangelo from Camilla. 

  • As we approach May, this means we are close to the end of our social year and our association's general assembly where we vote in next year's Board of Directors. Now is the time to consider whether you would like to join the Board for the 2019-2020 social year. Board members have a wonderful opportunity to get together and work as a team on a regular basis; it is a really special and fulfilling experience! Don't sell yourself short - no special skills are needed. Please contact president@iwfbologna.com to express your interest and availability, and of course to ask any questions you may have.

  • By now you should have received an email from our membership team regarding changes to the privacy policy for which IWF needs your consent in order to keep you on our mailing lists. Please note that we do need you to respond to this email by April 15.  If you have not received it, please contact membership@iwfbologna.com. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
