Co-op Month and Howard Bowers Day

In celebration of October, Co-op Month, please consider having your co-op participate in Howard Bowers Day.  Funds raised on this day for the Bowers Fund are used to help new food co-ops and groups forming food co-ops get the training and education that are vital to opening and success!  Some of the co-ops that have benefitted from a Howard Bowers Day grant are New Orleans, South Philly, Monadnock, Fairbanks, Friendly City, Stone's Throw, and Company Shops.  To participate, pick a day in October and donate 3% of proceeds to the Bowers Fund or make a flat donation in October to the Bowers Fund.  For more information, please contact me at [email protected] or 202 442-2331.  Thank you!
