2021 Local Producers Scholarships!

The Co-op is proud to offer these local scholarships!

Here at the 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 food just tastes better. To spur the growth of local food production, Cook County Whole Foods Co-op offers annual Local Producers Scholarships (LPS). This year the Board voted to increase the scholarships to $1,000. The LPS strives to help local producers establish and improve their farms, buy needed equipment and supplies, and pay for education on organic farming. Applicants must be residents of Cook County, MN.

The Application deadline is February 15, 2021.

If you are interested in applying please drop off, e-mail or send a letter to the Cook County Whole Foods Co-op.
