Event Description

Bellingham Community Food Co-op: Dessert with the Directors Forum
Looking ahead to 2020, how can we create a strong local food system?
Free Event—Registration Required

Following up on our conversation about Peak Oil at the October Dessert with the Directors, the Board invites you to a discussion about the future of local food. What role should the Co-op play, and how does that fit into our long range strategic thinking?  What will meet your needs, as member owners, in the coming years? Sue Webber from the Sustainable Whatcom Fund of the Whatcom Community Foundation will start off the evening, sharing some of the new initiatives happening locally to strengthen our food system.

While we explore the possibilities, we will enjoy a delicious array of desserts lined up by Swan Bakery manager Darcy McGuirk. The menu will highlight local and regional ingredients and suppliers, and includes vegan and gluten-free options. We’ll also have beverages, fruit and local cheese plates.

To reserve your seat if you're a Food Co-op member, call 360-734-8158 or stop by the service desk at either store. For info contact Jean at 360-734-8158 ext. 217 or email

I want to know what the farmers think, and have the local consumers listen.
