Our Member Loan Drive is underway and we’re over two-thirds of the way to our goal! We are SO EXCITED and wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude to those who have invested in the future of our Co-op thus far. We truly are growing together!
The positive feedback from member-owners has been overwhelming and has served as a helpful reminder of why this project is so important. Here are some of the wonderful words of encouragement we’ve received:
- “The Co-op is more than my source for healthy foods and products; it’ my community. It has invested in our local economy, and I am delighted to invest in the co-op’s next expansion.”
—Abi Sessions, educator, grandmother, community volunteer
- “MNFC is one of the most critical centers for wellness in our community. The growth and well-being of our families, friends and neighbors depends on all the goods—literally and figuratively—that our local Co-op provides.”
—Jack Mayer, MD, MPH Rainbow Pediatrics
- “The Co-op reflects our values…. Backing the expansion means enlarging our ability to create fair wage jobs, to support local farmers and food companies, and to provide healthy foods to a broader segment of our community. We’re in!”
—Amy Sheldon, state representative & Ashar Nelson, architect
- “We see loaning money to the Co-op for its expansion as an investment in community prosperity.”
—Will & Judy Stevens, Golden Russet Farm, producers
- “MNFC exemplifies environmental responsibility, but also community connectedness. It’s one of the places that makes Addison County what it is!”
—Bill McKibben, environmental activist, author & Sue Halpern, author
