I would really like to help realize the dream of opening the PFC at 100% of its original plan; to help the organization and store come to life without compromise.

What experience (if any) have you had with cooperatives, food or otherwise?
My experience is simply from visiting coops and buying groceries there. I've been an early advocate for PFC because I enjoyed that experience so much.
