Food Co-op to discuss boycott of products

A meeting to discuss the Olympia Food Co-op board's decision to boycott Israeli products is set for 6-8:30 p.m. today at The Olympia Center, 222 Columbia St. N.W.

Co-op spokeswoman Jayne Kaszynski said the meeting will be limited to public testimony. Although the 10-member board plans to attend the meeting and will introduce themselves, they will not answer questions or make a decision at the end of the meeting.

“The board will be there to listen to members’ ideas, feedback and concerns,” she said.

Not everyone may be able to attend the meeting. Seating preference will be given to members first, followed by nonmembers. The same rule applies for local media, Kaszynski said.
