 Hi Your Friend,

I just became an owner of Prairie Food Co-op. This is an exciting project that I support and I want to tell you about it.

Prairie Food Co-op (PFC) is a community-owned grocery store that will be located in Lombard. Most of this area does not have access to a quality grocery store or year-round access to locally produced food. Residents of Lombard decided to solve this problem for themselves and began organizing a grocery store owned by themselves! The PFC is moving forward, working with experts in the grocery industry and organizations skilled in cooperative business development.

We are working toward gaining 1,000 owners by the end of 2016. Each ownership costs $200 (per household). It’s a lifetime Ownership – there’s no renewal needed! As an owner you are eligible to take part in the decision making around how the store operates and how the revenue it generates is used to reinvest in the community. Owners may stand for election to the Board of Directors.

Will you join me by becoming a PFC owner today? You can either pay the full $200 all at once, or sign up for the easy installment plan. This plan let’s you put as little as $25 down and then make monthly payments until the $200 Ownership fee is paid.

I’m excited to be a part of something historic – residents joining together to solve the issues facing their community. I hope you will join me in becoming a PFC owner and that I’ll see you at the next PFC gathering!

In cooperation,
Your Name
