March Madness ... Co-op Style!

Less than a half year old, the Cedar Falls Food Co-op is growing by leaps and bounds. It is anticipated by early in March (if not before then), the Co-op will reach the 100-member mark.  This is a huge milestone for moving an idea into reality. Other exciting news for March.... We’re partnering with SingleSpeed and Sidecar in the launch of a new Iowa-based beer called Cooperative Stout.

If that’s not enough madness for the month, on March 22 we’re bringing the 2014 documentary Food Patriots to the Oster Regent. Please check out all these details and more in this month’s edition of the Garlic Press!
