Cooperatives and Diverse Communities 2019

Atugust 23, 2019

Join us for a day of learning and discovery as we discuss the components of the food system – from growers and producers to farmers markets and grocery stores – to envision how the cooperative business model can help rebuild the local food system.  
In order to invoke change and combat food insecurity, it’s critical to be inclusive.  Change starts with education.  Let’s work together to be the change.  This full day of education can be the first vital step to making change happen.
