The Numbers Are In...

We have received the final amount that was raised through ticket sales at the February 1st screening of Food For Change - $1867.50! This brings a little more than 15% of the way towards our initial fundraising goal of $20,000, which is beyond encouraging and very exciting.


This event could not have been possible without the support and help from our friends at River Valley Market, Green Fields Market, The Old Creamery Co-op, and Home Planet Pictures. And of course, thank you to every person who attended the event!

Next up for Amherst Community Co-op is our Membership Kick-off Drive! We hope you will attend and join as a founding member of our cooperative.

Date: Saturday, April 12th, 2014
Time: 4:00 - 6:00 pm
Location: Immanuel Lutheran Church, 867 North Pleasant Street, Amherst MA.

There will be live jazz music, free kids' games, food and drink donated by local businesses (including Bart's Ice Cream!), and guest speakers. We are excited to announce that Gary Hirshberg, founder of Stonyfield Farms, will be our keynote speaker! Please shoot us an e-mail at if you have further questions.

Happy almost spring!
