Open Office Hours & Access Process and Appointment Scheduling

Office Hours 

Monday –  12:30pm 3:00pm

Tuesday – Closed

Wednesday – 2:00pm to 4:30pm

Thursday – Closed

Friday – 9:30am to 12:00pm

Access Process 

  • Only 1 member will be allowed in the office at a time. Masks or face    coverings which cover the nose, mouth, and chin must be worn by staff and members at all times.
  • Before entering the office, members will be asked to complete a brief COVID‐19  self assessment questionnaire. If symptoms are present,       access will not be permitted.
  • When arriving at the office, members should knock on the door and then wait to enter the space when a staff person lets them in. Once in the office, the door will be locked behind them. The member will move to the meeting table at the back of the office to discuss the nature of their visit.
  • The office will remain closed for 15 minutes between member visits, so that the meeting area can be properly sanitized , and staff can make notes for follow‐up, based on the meeting. Staff will then reopen the door and call the next member in line.
  • There will be seating in the co‐op lobby alcove for members waiting to access the office. In instances of high member turnout, staff will enter the lobby to “triage” members’ needs or requests. Staff will determine whether a member needs to physically enter the office, or whether the issue can be resolved by a staff member in a pre‐scheduled appointment.

Appointment Scheduling 

Making appointments to meet with staff in advance will be a crucial part of maintaining safe distance. Generally, members can make appointments to meet with staff between 9:00 am-4:00 pm. Safe meeting space is available in the office or in  nearby rooms. For members requiring evening  appointments,  Manager Ann Dion is available up to 7:00 pm Monday through Thursday. To book appointments, please contact Ryan Hayward at 416 920-7340 x 204 or via email at rhayward@dianefranklingco-op.com

 

Nourish

NOURISHPIC

Since launching in 2018, DFC’s award-winning Nourish program has effectively allocated over 200 gift cards to members facing food scarcity. That’s over $5,600.00 in assistance!  The level of gratitude that members who utilize this program share with us is profound and is a constant     reminder of how important program is to our community.

To continue offering this help, we are calling on all those members (who are able) to donate to this program! We are happy to accept PC grocery gift cards in the amount of $25.00 or cash donations that we can use to  purchase cards. No amount is too little! For more information on how to donate, please contact Ryan or Ali in the co-op    office.

 Thank You for your help & consideration.
