01-11-19 Healthy Food System Weekly Update

View this email in your browser

Happy Friday and I hope 2019 is off to a great start for everyone (in spite of the ridiculous govt shutdown...) Below is the news we've found. Also, we'd like to acknowledge that Greensboro Renaissance Community Coop has announced its closing. While the economics sadly did work out, that is not a reflection on the effort, passion and commitment put forward by community and coop leaders. Hopefully their learnings can "fail forward" and be put to good use in future endeavors. Lastly, if folks ever have anything they'd like us to highlight in future weeks then feel free to reach out. Cheers!
