This Week in Anabel's (Closed!)
Store Closed This Week, Final Week of Operation in December!
Hey everyone, happy Thanksgiving! Given that many of our staff and customers will be going home for the majority of the week, Anabel’s will NOT be open this week! We’re preparing for one final week of store operations before we officially close Anabel’s for the semester :(
Here’s what our schedule will look like for the rest of the semester:
Be sure to come visit us one last time before we head to winter break!
You Decide What’s In the Store!
Have something that you really really want Anabel’s to stock? Let us know, and we’ll do our best to get that item in the store for the final week! Many of your suggestions may carry over to the next semester, so fill out the form if you have any ideas!
Our Second Community Dinner!
Join us for our second community dinner December 3rd at 6 pm with a movie too! Please RSVP here!
Food Drive Continues!
The Anabel’s Food Drive has already started, but it’s not too late to help out! Since Thanksgiving is a holiday centered around celebrating food with family and friends, we want to help those who may be facing food insecurity this holiday season.
There is a box inside Anabel’s for you to drop off your donations, and all collections will be donated to Friendship Donations Network of Ithaca, a local hunger relief organization. Things you can buy at Anabel’s (ie. canned beans, pasta, crackers, lentils, snacks,…) can all be donated to the food drive, so buy an extra can of beans and help out our local community!
An Anabel’s Magazine???
Surprise! We’re currently in the works of publishing our newest magazine in December, which will include recipes (many of which have not been featured yet in Anabel’s!), food guides (like how to properly store vegetables, how to grow your own herbs), and food justice articles! We’ll give you more details in next week’s newsletter, so stay tuned…
Join the Food Justice Coalition Group Chat!
Want to tune in to the food justice movement on campus?
Click here to join the GroupMe!
The Anabel's Collaboration and Education Committee is working on making a big group chat that includes students from a wide variety of campus organizations whose work is related to or intersects with food justice. The FJC strives to lay the foundation for solidarity, support, and cross-disciplinary collaboration between everyone affected by and engaged with food. This initiative was started by Anabel's last year with support of the Regenerative Agriculture and Food Security Collective, and we're trying to recreate it for a new year with active students! Food justice is a fundamentally intersectional issue, so people involved in any kind of social or environmental justice work on campus are encouraged to join.

Hope you all have a fantastic week and a wonderful thanksgiving weekend!
