Event Description

The Community Food Co-op invites everyone to join in the hoopla and celebrate the completion of its newly remodeled Downtown store.


Major improvements to the store include a new mezzanine seating area, remodeled bathrooms, and the addition of a salad bar and innovative hot bar with vegan, vegetarian, and meat options available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner service. The hot bar food is exceptional—showcasing top-quality international cuisine and favorite comfort foods usually found only in sit-down restaurants.
