With the support of our enthusiastic community of local farm lovers, the Farm Fund continues to grow. Since 2000, the Co-op’s Farm Fund has distributed $383,825+ to more than 55 local farms, and food and farming organizations.

The Community Food Co-op is happy to co-sponsor this lively, fun community event with Sustainable Connections. Together we’ll kick off Eat Local Month in grand fashion—a month in which our community celebrates all the folks who work hard every day to provide us with local food.
