Bis-Man Community Food Co-Op Holds First Meeting

Posted: Updated:

With the booming growth in Bismarck, it's no surprise that businesses have been sprouting non-stop. And today one local organization is celebrating a milestone.

The Bis-Man Community Food Co-Op's first annual meeting is underway at the Bismarck Art Galleries Association. The Co-Op has reached 350 members recently and is getting closer to final plans of the proposed marketplace. The celebration started with a business meeting which was followed by a social with drinks, hors d'oeuvres, live music and activities for kids. Organizers say they are happy with the growth and are excited to make local food more accessible. 

"Anybody who has been a member of a food coop before I think can understand that just a great little place where they offer local foods and a sense of community and a lot of time we're not able to find all local food we want and the food we do want we have to go to multiple places for that," says Outreach Coordinator, Heidi Demars.
