Future Plans for the Glens Falls Co-Op to be Discussed at Crandall Library

Glens Falls Food Co-Op General Meeting

Glens Falls Food Co-opIf you’ve heard of the Glens Falls Co-Op, and have been interested but never had the time to get involved or understand what really goes on, now is your chance.

The Glens Falls Food Co-Op will be hosting a discussion for coop members and interested non-members on Monday, May 13, 2013 from 7-8pm at the Community Room at the Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls. The meeting will focus primarily on the state of operations at the Moreau store location, as well as future plans for the coop.

Founded in 2011, the Glens Falls Food Co-op sells mostly organic and locally grown food, the co-op already has a solid group of core members and currently offers four membership levels, each including a financial commitment, a required number of volunteer hours, a 10 to 20%, discount and a re-usable shopping bag. The co-op is similar to a farmer’s market, except that it’s open all week, and provides plenty of amazing local and organic products and fresh produce, with the intention of connecting quality food from area farms to coop members.

As it cannot be stressed enough the importance of local food is better for consumers and for the environment. Having local food reduces travel and distribution time, especially when the majority of farms in the area are eco-friendly and utilize organically sound farming techniques…plus it helps bring money to the community!

This meeting is free and open to the public. The Glens Falls Food Co-Op is not-for-profit, member-owned and organized under NYS cooperative corporations law and operates out of the Rockhill Bakehouse on Route 9 in Moreau (about a mile north of Exit 17N of the Northway).
