More Co-ops Up and Running!

Nationwide Wave of New Food Co-ops

There is room for everyone's participation in and support for new food co-ops!  Established co-ops and support groups are contributing to this cause, thereby strengthening the food co-op sector.  Next year's Up & Coming, Up & Running conference, held in Bloomington, Indiana, is scheduled for March 10-12, 2016.
