Dear Eat to Live Member,

As with many food cooperatives across the country, Eat to Live is facing increased competition in the market and decreasing foot traffic, which are impacting the store’s cash flow. We need to take immediate steps to address these challenges.

The board and members need to make some difficult decisions regarding the future of Eat to Live. The board is calling a special membership meeting:

Wednesday, December 13th at 6:00 pm

Eat to Live Coop- 2323 S Salina St, Syracuse, NY 13205

The Board of Directors has some ideas, but more importantly, we need your ideas about making sure the co-op stays open. We can weather this storm and create a stronger and more resilient business for our members.

We also want to share some of the changes already underway

  • The Coop will be reducing its hours. It will now be open Wednesday-Saturday from 12pm-6 pm
  • There will be a reduction in staff
  • Product selection will be limited

The Board of Directors is committed to meeting the cooperative’s challenges. And we look forward to hearing from our members to help identify strategies to ensure the viability of this neighborhood asset. And what products you would like to see in the Coop.

We look forward to seeing all of you on December 13th at 6 pm.
