An exciting movement is afoot in the State College area.
Friends and Farmers Cooperative is gaining momentum. Organized as a consumer cooperative that prioritizes relationships with local farmers, processors and businesses, Friends and Farmers is holding an annual meeting on Nov. 5 from 4-6:30 p.m. at the Friends School on University Drive.
This is a great opportunity for many like-minded folks to see where this organization is, and more importantly where it endeavors to go.
With a goal of opening a retail grocery store that forwards the mission of promoting local purchasing, Friends and Farmers Cooperative would like to include more people in this venture.
