Meet the Co-op

We’re slightly revising our Meet the Co-op series to include “Owners To Know”.  Prairie Food Owners have much to share in terms of information and education regarding sustainability, nutrition, health & wellness, and food-related topics. Of course, there will still be opportunities to discuss the co-op with owners and PFC Board members. Owners and non-owners alike are welcome. Come to learn more about the co-op and meet some amazing Owners!

Our Meet-ups are scheduled at various times and locations throughout the summer. Be sure to check back to keep updated on where we’ll be next!
