Please claim your seat for the Co-op's 3rd Annual Owners Meeting, followed by our 1st Annual Harvest Festival at Organic Harvest Gardens. An optional Farmers Choice Buffet for adults and children will be available (delicious and fresh), with light fare at 12 PM and a full buffet at 2 PM. This family friendly event will include booths from local businesses, community organizations, and activities for kids. This is a fundraiser for the Long Beach Grocery Co-op, an opportunity to learn from inspiring speakers, and a fun way to connect as a community. The Keynote Speaker will be Stuart Reid from Food Coop Initiative, a non-profit that exists solely to help Start-Up Co-ops, and additional speakers to be announced soon. This is also a fundraiser and owner-drive to celebrate National Co-op Month!
Stuart Reid, Keynote Speaker from Food Co-op Initiative
Mr. Reid has volunteered, managed and served on the boards of many food co-ops, worked for the co-op-owned DANCe warehouse, and helped open the Just Food Co-op in Northfield, Minnesota as their first general manager. Stuart has been part of FCI since its earliest years and sees no reason to do anything else.
