Access Notes

We are striving towards a no-scent space. Please don’t arrive wearing scents; it makes this space difficult or impossible to be in for folks with chemical sensitivities and other chronic illnesses.

Description

Please join us for the first (but hopefully not only!) community care night for queer &/or trans people at People’s Food Co-op.

There will be healing practitioners offering services for free including: energy work, acupuncture, and others to be determined. Look out for updates on this event page.

Craft tables, craft supplies, comfortable seats, and space for socializing will be available. We will also have a popup free pantry and zine library - get in touch if you have things to share!

Vegan & gluten free snacks & drinks provided!

Folks of all ages are welcome and childcare will be offered.

Queer & trans people of color, chronically ill and disabled folks, and youth are specifically welcome to attend!

This event is open to queer &/or trans people. This space is not for cisgender & straight folks, but if you are cis & straight and want to help by donating services, supplies or foods, get in touch by emailing sofie@peoples.coop.

We are also hoping to grow this event in the future. Please be in contact if you would like to help.
