Allina Health grant helps Rockford area residents start local food co-op

[KARE-TV, July 22, 2012] Once served by their own grocery store, residents in Rockford and Greenfield, just west of the Twin Cities, are now driving at least ten miles to get fresh fruits and vegetables.

With the high price of gas, many don't want to do that anymore so some are starting up a member owned food co-op.

The co-op received a Neighborhood Health Connection grant. Allina Health started the program to help individuals and organizations improve health in their communities. Here's the story from KARE11.
