Local Effort for Hartford Food Cooperative

Local Effort for Hartford Food Cooperative

December’s Green Drinks Hartford meeting, from 6 to 8pm, December 13, will focus on a local effort to start a brick-and-mortar food cooperative in Hartford.

Inside the city there are many places where access to healthy and culturally appropriate food is limited. Food cooperatives present a solution as they are owned by their shoppers; they are created by the community coming together and putting their values first by investing in a community-owned grocery store. These types of grocery stores have been proven to improve access to healthy food and provide sustainable community development in the form of jobs and community engagement.

Join Green Drinks Co-organizer Sam King, James Jeter and Hartford Community Loan Fund’s Dan Britton to learn about cooperatives and how you can get involved. Join the Green Drinks chapter on the second Wednesday of each month to connect, network and have fun with other environmentally conscious people.
