Homegrown Co-op is recruiting 300 new members in a fundraising push that will launch 2012 plans that will make a big impact for Central Floridians wanting convenient access to local food—which is the Co-op’s primary mission.
In what remains of 2011, Homegrown Co-op has an ambitious plan to recruit 300 new members – including individual registrations and gift memberships – to meet its year-end capital revenue needs and be able to continue its development plans into 2012.
At the minimum, funds raised through this membership drive will secure the Co-op’s operational expansion in order to continue providing greater customer convenience and a wider selection of inventory for their weekly online market and their Farm Store. The Co-op’s eventual goal, however, is significantly grander: to develop its convenience storefront into 7 days of operation with a larger selection of food, and to launch three neighborhood pick up sites in Winter Park, Dr Phillips, and University of Central Florida during the first half of 2012.
Continued development of their retail storefront will offer a level of access and convenience that is in great demand but not currently available.
