    Beekeeping in the 'Burbs

    Whether you're toying with the idea of starting your own hive or just have a general interest in honeybees, join us for a fun afternoon hanging out at a local apiary to learn about backyard beekeeping taught by our own busy bee, PFC board director Beth!

    Not only will you get to learn about the fascinating world of beekeeping, we'll also be making our own bee wrap to bring home to use in place of plastic!

    PFC Owners are free, but we ask for a $5 donation if you’re not a PFC Owner yet. (Or just become a PFC Owner to get perks and discounts and free admission to certain workshops like this!)

    RSVP today! The workshop address (near downtown Lombard) will be privately emailed.

    Sign Now! Bring PFC to Downtown Lombard

    We are thrilled to announce that we are pursuing the development opportunity at 101 - 109 S. Main St. in Lombard. We will soon submit our proposal to the Village of Lombard to secure this location in partnership with a local development firm. Our proposal is in response to the Village's request for proposal (RFP) for the site.

     

    We love this location for its unique history, accessibility, proximity to the downtown corridor, and its ability to deliver on our mission to create a local, sustainable and connected food community. After completing two separate professional market studies and reviewing alternate sites, we also know this location is the best performing option for Prairie Food Co-op.

     

    Please sign your name to our petition of community support. We need our Owners and entire community rallying to make this future home a possibility. Share this link with your family and friends, neighborhood groups, trustees, and favorite local businesses.

     

    Prairie Food Co-op started as a community conversation to bring a cooperatively owned grocery store to DuPage County and has grown into a thriving organization of 750+ owners working together to open a brick-and-mortar marketplace for locally grown food and products. PFC will not only bring quality food to our tables but will provide fair paying jobs, focus on sustainable practices, and drive business within the local economy.  Thank you for your continued support as we begin this exciting chapter in our story!
