Greetings from the Rogers Park Food Co-op Founders Group,
We are reaching out to you, the Rogers Park community to solicit input and gauge interest in the creation of a community-owned grocery store. With the recent unfortunate news from Dominick's, addressing food access and security at a local level seems more timely than ever and illustrates some of the problems with the conventional corporate business model.
Our group has been meeting since December 2012 developing structure and studying best practices for the creation of a food co-op in Rogers Park.
We ask that you share this meeting announcement and press release with your members and attend the open meeting December 4th, 7pm at the United Church of Rogers Park.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
