The Initiative Foundation awarded a $3,000 grant to the Rockford HRA which will help fund the financial pro forma needed for the Crow River Food Co-op. The Rockford HRA is funding the remainder of the study. We have hired Bill Gessman from CDS Consulting Coop to complete the pro forma and heard he is the best! We hope to have the study completed within the next month or so.

We need your support in order to open our members owned grocery store.
There is a group of citizens that have been working towards this goal for over a year. We need local support since the grocery store will be a food co-op. Co-ops are owned by the members as they see the value in supporting the local economy. In order to support our efforts become a member today. We have 83 paid members so far. It’s easy just takes a few clicks, complete the membership application, pay for the membership all of it is online on our website. Just click on the membership tab. Thank you for you support!
