Food cooperative offers grant to local organizations

Feather Publishing

  Quincy Natural Foods Co-op offers an annual grant to Plumas County organizations.

  This year $600 will be given to an organization or group whose purpose and activities address agriculture, food and hunger; environment; community; or cooperatives.

  What have recipients done with their grant money in the past?

  In 2007 the Mountain Food Security Project used funds to support Community Food Council meetings. The Council has advocated for the inclusion of sustainable food and farming language in the county’s general plan as well as worked to develop avenues for local farmers to sell to cafeterias and institutions.

  In 2008 the Pioneer Parent Co-op Garden Project built raised beds for young students to grow a variety of vegetables.

  The year 2010 saw the development of Sierra Farmstead (Greenville Community Garden) garden beds and in 2011 Transition Quincy set up a new website to promote community-level self-sufficiency and resilience.

  In 2012 funds supported Women’s Mountain Passages’ Digging In program, which offers fun garden lessons to provide kids with an understanding of the interconnected nature of agriculture, ecology and society.

  Plumas County has many organizations working on projects that benefit the communities.

  Apply for the Cooperative Community Grant before July 12.

  Applications are available at Quincy Natural Foods Cooperative and online at qnf.coop.
