Grand Rapids Food Co-op Initiative is one year old! This group of visionary citizens is celebrating their official incorporation as a cooperative with an old-fashioned potluck picnic at Aberdeen Park this Sunday, June 4, 2017 from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join in the festivities. Bring your family, bring a dish to pass and some beverages.

This is a great opportunity to meet the member-owners of the co-op, some 70 strong and become a member-owner yourself, if you aren’t already. We’ll play some games and learn about what the co-op has accomplished in the past year and find out what our plans are to bring a full-service, community owned, grocery store to central Grand Rapids. You will also have a chance to suggest a name for our new grocery store!

These are exciting times for bringing great food to a part of town that has traditionally been lacking in food access. Come join us in celebrating this milestone in the life of Grand Rapids Food Co-op Initiative.

For more information you can visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/GRFCI, or our website at www.grfoodcoop.com. Aberdeen Park is located at 2230 Eastern Ave. NE. Submitted by Linda Jones, Co-President, GRFCI.
