Or are lowest prices on anything sold under the sun as food the top priority for most participants in a food or food systems cooperative. I see two options here: a food cooperative and a food systems cooperative.

Good energy here. Now that a few folks are keen, I float a high level strategy for a Beacon food coop grounded in Hudson Valley food systems - as opposed to, say, systems resulting in getting Goya or General Mills or Applegate products via national distributors for lower prices. Valley farmers are ready, willing, and able to supply food year round. Are enough Beaconites ready, willing, and able to invest in valley food systems, inputs, and outputs?

I am a former member of the Park Slope and Jersey City food coops.  I would be willing to help get something started if there is a solid group of people working on it.

I am ready, willing, and able!

Any other Park Slope Food Coop members or ex-members floating around Beacon these days? Members/ex-members of other food coops around? Seems the time is nigh to establish something grand. Anyone else ready, willing, and able?

I'm moving to Beacon in November and VERY interested in being a part of this. Any updates recently?
