Local Producers Scholarship—
Here at COOK COUNTY WHOLE FOODS CO-OP, we strive to offer as much local food as we can, because it’s good for the community and the earth… plus local just tastes better. To spur the growth of local food production, Cook County Whole Foods Co-op offers an annual Local Producers Scholarship (LPS) of $500. The LPS strives to help local producers establish and improve their farms, buy needed equipment and supplies and pay for education on organic farming.
