Big news! Cultivate Community Food Cooperative, Inc. celebrates becoming an official business entity in the State of California! Cultivate Community Food Co-op (CCFC) is working to establish Solano County’s first community-owned, natural grocery store- a one-stop, brick and mortar grocer dedicated to providing high quality, locally sourced, culturally relevant, ethically produced and affordable products for a more sustainable local economy.
This summer, four members of CCFC’s steering team including Founder Paula Schnese, Wolf Hagar, Ana Acosta, and Greg Morrison traveled to the office of the Secretary of State in Sacramento to file Cultivate Community Food Cooperative, Inc.’s Articles of Incorporation, mandatory in the state to enable a cooperative to operate as a legal entity.
Everyone is invited to attend the “Incorporation Celebration” event on Friday, September 8th from 7:00p-9:00p in the back room of the Rellik Tavern on First St. in Benicia to share in a toast of champagne (or a cup of tea) to celebrate this huge community milestone. Bring your wallets as this will be the first opportunity to buy in on Owner Shares! Be one of the first 100 owners and you will receive a special ‘Thank You’ gift from CCFC!
