IDEAS For Community Cooperative: Food Coop Initiative

Food Coop Initiative (Funds programs)

2012 Grant deadlines have not been announced yet. We do expect to have some funds available for both rural and urban startup support in 2012. Please do not submit requests at this time.

To get a general idea of the grant requirements, you can look at last year’s forms. There will be some changes in 2012 including eligibility for urban co-ops.

A group of growers, consumers and community business promoters have banded in the Red Wing area to form an integrated food system that promotes sustainable and organic agriculture from field to plate

Does your co-op have members that would like to learn more about cooperative economy, history, and philosophy? Are they interested in finding out about different cooperative models and the industries in which they are applied? Are they curious as to how people in other parts of the world organize into cooperatives? Do they wonder if there is a cooperative solution to economic challenges in your community?

    him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
