HR Manager Jon Roesser does his best Craig Laban impersonation, butcher Rick plays resident food anthropologist and WWCH staffer Lara is just kind of apologetic over new cricket flour energy bars the Co-op now carries...Bon Appetit!

Is it a fruit or a vegetable? Let's slice it down the middle and go with frechtable (This is actual taxonomic terminology here. We don't make stuff like this up.) Plantains are a staple food in the tropical regions of the world, and frankly we Philadelphians should really give this fretchtable some justice. Plantains are treated in much the same way as potatoes and with a similar neutral flavour and texture when the unripe fruit is cooked by steaming, boiling or frying.

Weavers Way Next Door's November 8th grand opening was a blast! Check out the Facebook album of the event. Guests enjoyed demos, met local vendors and the wonderful WWND staff and noshed and nibbled in our beautiful new store at 8426 Germantown Ave, right “Next Door” to our Chestnut Hill grocery store.

We've been having a whole lot of fun showing off the store to the Chestnut Hill community and our membership. We’ve got just about everything under the sun for all of your health and beauty needs. If you don’t see it, just ask Amira, Molly, Lauren or Chris.

Stop by, say hi and let us know what you think. Thank you to the “WWND” Task Force Team and all the staffers and members who contributed their assistance in all forms and fashions to get this project done smoothly, efficiently and, of course, with a little flair.

General Manager Glenn Bergman testified Oct. 28 before City Council’s public Property and Public Works Committee in favor of establishing a Land Bank to streamline the disposition of vacant properties in the city.

Philadelphia currently has an estimated 40,000 vacant and blighted properties, with four different city agencies sharing control over some 10,000 of them. City Councilwoman Maria Quiñones-Sánchez's proposed legislation would set up an authority to handle acquisition, maintenance and sale of these properties, making the process easier for potential buyers.

Glenn testified on behalf of Weavers Way and as an appointed member of the Mayor’s Food Policy Advisory Council.

Here's the full text of his remarks.
