Volunteer Crisis
- Ryan has proactive plans:
1) night is the big issue – we need to make it feel fun to work at night (need a poster about the great stuff that happens at night, make it clear that as part of a community, the more people who work, the better it is – it is EASY if there are more than two people) – ACTION: Alex will make poster
2) kitchen managers will do night shifts and teach people how to lock up – train them up! – ACTION: all do at least one shift
3) Encourage night manager to get friends to sign up for their shifts – RYAN will post this on NM forum
4) New night managers? – letter with a free card. Elle, Torstein, Holly, Caroline, Shaun, Mark, Faith, Paulo, Sean, Rob, Lily & Chris ACTION: Shannon will ask Neil where the letter is, make sure there is details about bb forum

Vegan Burritos
- Ryan would like to note that only two vegan burritos have been bought on his shift
- Shannon would like to note that more than two have been sold on hers and that many of our volunteers enjoy eating them
- ACTION: Shannon will make a sign to advertise vegan burritos

- takes three hours to cook after soaking overnight
- experiment continues
- make sure they get soaked!!! Cook em and then keep em till later…

Broken things
- rice cooker: Shannon will call Georgina and then pick the cooker up on Thursday]
