A Message of Support for the Greene Hill Food Co-op

Did you know that District 35 is home to one of just a handful of 100% worker owned-and-run food co-ops in the country? The Greene Hill Food Co-op welcomes anyone age 18+ to join, work and shop. But they need your help!

They are relocating on June 1st, and need your help to get there. Over 300 people have backed their project on Indiegogo, helping to raise $30,000 so far. Visit their page to help them reach their $50,000 goal:  https://igg.me/at/greenehillfoodcoop/
