The River Market Cooperative Community Fund got off to a wonderful start through the sale of $315 in dinner tickets from the Annual Meeting, and $105 in donated $5 dollar gift coupons and $80 contributed by River Market which brought our total given to the RMCCF to $500. As a result of meeting the match, an additional $500 was donated to our RM CCF jointly by Frontier Co-op, National Cooperative Bank and Organic Valley.
River Market is proud to join dozens of other food co-ops in establishing a Cooperative Community Fund.
The principle goes to support cooperative development across the country, while the interest is distributed locally to community non-profits.
