Dorchester Community Food Co-op

Building a Healthy, Sustainable & Economically Viable Community

We met the challenge! Co-op to receive matching grant

1 Comment

WE MADE IT! 

Thanks to so many of you, we exceeded our goal of raising $12,500 by April 15—and we WILL receive our matching grant from the Boston Impact Initiative.  We really appreciate how many of our supporters dug deep to achieve this goal—thanks to all of you spread the word, forwarded our emails, shared our  Facebook posts, and retweeted our Twitter messages. This truly has been a grassroots effort. As of this morning, we have raised over $13,000.

The outpouring of support was overwhelming—and it is a sign that our project of building a new urban food co-op is resonating with folks in Dorchester and allies across the city (and beyond). The Vision Fund will be used to do the work to make this dream a reality: design and plan the new store, continue the outreach to build our membership, further develop our organizational systems, and raise the capital to start the business. We are well on our way.

If you have not yet had a chance to send in a donation, it is not too late!  We will continue to build the Vision Fund beyond this matching grant challenge to raise money for the co-op development.
