New Albany Food Coop Possibilities (On Facebook)

Date: Tuesday, November 3, 2009
Time: 7:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Location: Carnegie Center for Art and History

Develop New Albany, Inc. and the New Albany Urban Enterprise Association, Inc. are pleased to sponsor a presentation exploring possibilities for a food coop in downtown New Albany.

Andy Mahler, board president of Lost River Market and Deli, will speak Tuesday, November 3 at 7:00 at the Carnegie Center for Art and History.

Food coops are member-owned, self-managed associations dedicated to serving the needs of local farmers and consumers by providing healthy food choices at a fair value. Food coops aim to promote community well-being, economic prosperity, and self-reliance. They provide a local option for affordable, nutritious, locally-grown food and goods year round and help guaranty that local food dollars stay within the community.

Lost River Market and Deli was founded two years ago in Paoli, Indiana. Mr. Mahler will share Paoli’s experience in starting the enterprise and how it has helped served the needs of Orange Co. residents.

Complimentary coffee, hot apple cider and assorted baked goods will be provided by Dueling Grounds Cafe at Destinations Booksellers.
