The Cedar Falls Food Co-op understands the importance of recognizing, supporting and showcasing local businesses within our community. In turn, many businesses have already shown great excitement and interest in the growth and development of our community-owned co-op. To honor our new founding members, in 2015, the Cedar Falls Food Co-op is excited to announce our Business Partner of the Month. We are partnering with local businesses to provide our members with various specials and discounts. We are very pleased to offer our members such an immediate benefit. Once our store is open, members will, naturally, have access to the many benefits of being a member-owner. Our doors aren’t open just yet. However, providing our members with perks now, in this initial phase, feels fitting. We also desire to support our local businesses. So through our Facebook page and within our website and E-newsletters, we will be promoting a business of the month by featuring them and highlighting their services. Fostering supportive business partnerships benefits the whole community and certainly also reflects the cooperative model. Stay tuned in the months to come, as we will announce our monthly partners and the specials they are offering to our members!
