Your Co-op was selected for a Matching Grant from Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation!

The Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation oversees a pool of Cooperative Community Funds (CCF) throughout the United States. These community funds are essentially endowments. The principal of the funds are invested in cooperative development across the nation, and the interest earned through these investments is returned to the local co-op to be distributed to non-profits and social change agencies locally.
In celebration of its 50th year, the Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation, in partnership with Cabot Creamery, Capital Impact, Equal Exchange, National Cooperative Grocers Association, National Cooperative Bank, and Organic Valley, have provided $55,000 to match 11 new cooperative community funds, and Eastside Food Co-op has been selected to be one of those grant recipients – how cool is that?!

Permaculture demos at "The Garden" at Central & Lowry

Watch it grow! The southeast corner of Central and Lowry Aves NE, the the third busiest intersection in Minneapolis, is now home to a community project like no other! Initiated by Minneapolis City Council Member Kevin Reich, Cutlivate Northeast is a permaculture demonstration garden developed by a group of Northeasters including entrepreneur and author Joel Hernandez, Tom and Colleen of Tom’s Styling, Northeast Chamber of Commerce Director Christine Levins, and Chowgirls co-owner Heidi Andermack. The garden is tended by permaculture specialist Benji Mohr. The garden will show how to sustainably grow and compost by example.
