Building a Food Co-op in Evanston: From the Ground up
Ivy Boyer, Wild Tree Cafe proprietor, is spearheading the idea of a new food co-op and already has a working committee starting to figure out the right model. The overall goal would be to bring locally produced, affordable foods to Evanston while also creating a community to implement and sustain such a food venue.
To help the co-op committee quickly get to the right model, we have invited three experts to share their experiences on co-ops and buying clubs and making access to locally produced foods practical.
Suzanne Keers, Treasruer – Dill Pickle Co-op and Co-Founder, Local First Chicago
Rob Gardner – Editor-at-large, The Local Beet (www.thelocalbeet.com)
Scott Althoff – Vice President, Logan Square Food Buying Club
Potluck begins at 6:30. Bring an entree or appetizer (to serve 8-10).
Drinks provided by the Wild Tree Cafe.
Conversation starts at 7:00 PM.
Everyone invited to the potluck and/or conversation!
