SEPTEMBER 2020 NEWSLETTER

WE'RE GROWING BY LEAPS & BOUNDS!

In August, the Food Co-op gained 30 new owners. During 2020, we have welcomed 256 new Co-op owners -- more than an owner a day. Owners are the Co-op's most important asset, as we make progress daily toward opening Fredericksburg's community-owned grocery store.

Everyone is welcome to become an equal Co-op owner. Everything in a Co-op works better with more owners. Owners provide essential core financial equity and a growing ownership base helps us be truly inclusive of all aspects of our wonderful community. Our spirits are lifted every time a new owner joins the Food Co-op.
SEPTEMBER NEW OWNER INCENTIVE



Wait no longer. Join today. All who join the Fredericksburg Food Co-op in September will be entered in a drawing to win $50 in Farmers Market tokens. The tokens are good for purchasing great items from local producers at our Fredericksburg Farmers Market and related markets.

At the end of the month we will put the names of all the new September owners in an envelope and select eight (8) lucky owners who will each receive $50 in Farmers Market tokens.

Join the Food Co-op this month and support our local farmers! Be part of this Co-op adventure as we get closer to opening day!
