Local co-op to hold membership kickoff Sunday

Friends & Farmers Cooperative will hold a membership kickoff celebration Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Centre County.

The cooperative is working to create a member-owned store that will feature local, sustainably produced products, according to a co-op news release.

Sunday’s event, from 3 to 6 p.m., is free and will feature live music, speakers — including State College Mayor Elizabeth Goreham — activities for children, food and door prizes.

Residents will have the opportunity to learn more about the co-op or invest as members.
