Forsyth County Beekeepers Association
In an effort to help honey bees, Ingredion Inc of Winston Salem has offered once again to provide Forsyth County Beekeepers Association bulk corn syrup for distribution to our members to feed their bees.
The stipulation with this offer is our association can't sell what we receive and no one receiving it from us can sell this corn syrup.
We have had a few members step forward to work out the logistics of filling two approximate 300 gallon totes of corn syrup. The totes will be filled and transported to the lower parking lot of the Burkhead United Methodist Church, 5250 Silas Creek Parkway, Winston-Salem, NC 27106 for distribution to FCBA members who registered to pickup their allotment of corn syrup on Saturday, July 11th, 2020, from 10am to 12noon.
Each registered member will be limited to the amount they registered for up to a max of 10 gallons. Based on last year we believe we are going to have about 30 people who are interested in this offer. How did we come to this allotment amount: 300 gallons /30 people = 10 gallon maximum first fill. After we have distributed all registered amounts we will let everyone registered line up again and get seconds using the same formula or until we run out.
We expect to have a second and third distribution this year depending on how well things go.
Registration will close Thursday 7/9/2020.
Please remember you can't sell the syrup you receive from this program. It is each registered member's responsibility to bring containers that will not leak and can hold the liquid dispensed. Last but not least this is a benefit for our members only. If you have some one who is interested all they have to do is become a member and then register for the program.
