I want a food co-op in Amherst because...

Back in June we had a great open meeting at Food For Thought Books! We introduced our new steering committee members, discussed the specifics of how our project will benefit from the feasibility study that we are currently raising funds for, and we introduced our logo contest (see below for details). We also asked everyone to write down why they want a food co-op in Amherst. We know why we're passionate about this project, but it's always exciting to hear why everyone else is as well!

"I envision a world where access and community strength are the ultimate goal of any enterprise- not profit." -Katherine Bhaduri

 

"I want to be able to bike to my grocery store, and be a more active member of where I buy my food (vs. a passive consumer)." -Cam Weimar

 

 "Food should be easily accessible for everyone (including those who don't have cars)." -Rebecca

"I don't want to drive to Hadley for my groceries!"

"I Think co-ops should take over the world!"
