PFC Featured in First National Bank of Michigan Newsletter

As 2012 comes to a close, we look back on our first full year in our new store, the long and challenging journey that brought us here. Our relationship with First National Bank of Michigan, our primary lender, was key to the success of our expansion project.

This month, FNB highlighted People's in their fall 2012 newsletter! Check out the article for a closer look into the history of our work together to strengthen the food community in Kalamazoo. FNB believed in our project and in the community of folks who joined together to make it a reality. We are truly grateful for their support!

PFC & Good Food Kalamazoo Partner Up

People’s Food Co-op of Kalamazoo is proud to be a partner organization to Good Food Kalamazoo (GFK), a collaboration among local agencies working toward a healthy food system in Kalamazoo County. Always looking for ways to increase access to food that is healthy for people, land, and the economy, People’s is teaming up with Fair Food Matters, Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes, and the Michigan Land Trustees in this important work.

The goal of GFK is to engage and empower the Kalamazoo community to provide itself with food that is healthy, green, fair, and affordable.  While each of the partner organizations have different focuses, GFK shares three goals stated in the Michigan Good Food Charter:

  • A Thriving Economy: Our farms and food businesses sustain farmers, owners, and workers and contribute to vibrant Michigan communities.
  • Sustainability: We have a diverse and resilient food system that protects our cultural, ecological and economic assets.
  • Equity: All people have access to good, Michigan-grown food, and our young people can thrive.

Good Food Kalamazoo’s current focus is the 2012-13 Food & Farm Bill, our nation’s largest piece of legislation concerning the food we eat.  For more information, visit the Good Food Kalamazoo website.
