 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. Our community 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! PFC is moving forward with an amazing centrally located future site at 101-109 South Main in Lombard. We have partnered with Holladay Properties to build our dream store.

We are working toward 1,350 Owners so that we can launch or Capital Investment Program to complete funding necessary to build our grocery store. 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

Please note, we will not share their names or addresses with anyone else, and will not contact them again unless they choose to join our mailing list!

Invest in a place to shop that you can call your own.
Together we really can do this.
