A Chance to Make a Difference

I'm excited to share an opportunity for my LOCAL peeps to get in on a way to support our local economy and have a real voice in our community.

I'm simply going to link you to the website for the Tacoma Food Co-op. Please go there and click around to educate yourself. They need 400 members and are almost there. Once they get the 400 members, they can secure the retail space to have a place to open. They hope to raise another $400k so that they can open later this year. This is a ground breaking/ground floor level opportunity to get yourself involved in something that is going to make a huge difference in our community.

If you cannot afford to join, please at least spread the word so that this project can get all the support that they can.

Thank you so much for your time and I appreciate your support!


  1. Thanks for spreading the word, Carmen! Tacoma is long overdue for a great place to buy local, natural, organic food. We're so close to our membership goal this month! It's incredibly exciting.

  2. I hope to get involved in many mind is already swimming with cross community partnership ideas and hoping that I can help in some way assist with the event planning when the time comes. I'd also like Katie to get involved and she shared with me that she has some interest - along with one or two of her close friends. Very, very exciting stuff!
