Prairie Roots Food Coop to host open house

MOORHEAD – The Prairie Roots Food Cooperative will host an open house membership drive here at 7 p.m. April 20 at the Bluestem Center for the Arts, 801 50th Ave. S.

The goal of the cooperative is to secure enough initial members willing to invest in a locally-owned food cooperative.

Once the base membership is established, further financing will be secured with the plan to establish a full service grocery store in 2013.

Tim Mathern, Fargo, is president of the cooperative and Gretchen Harvey, Moorhead, and Jennifer Faul, Davenport, N.D., serve on the membership committee.

For more information, email harvey@cord.edu or call (218) 299-4307.
