Host a Gathering
As a co-op member-owner, you have a vested interest in the success of our community food co-op. Hosting a gathering such as a house party to help educate your friends & family about the benefits of joining the Cedar Falls Food Co-op is a fun way to grow our membership & share your passion for great food & great community!
What types of events could you host? Basically, invite people you know to join you for something fun – simple is fine. You could invite a few friends over for coffee & sweets. You could go on an outdoor excursion and come back to your house for hot chocolate and chili. You know your crowd best, so the ideas are truly limitless & entirely up to you. We do encourage the following:
- You are a current member-owner (or plan to join at the event)
- You invite people who are not yet member-owners (alternatively, if you know several member-owners who have questions about the Co-op, you can host a gathering where we come address those questions)
- You invite a co-op board or committee member to stop in to help you talk about the food co-op and answer any questions your guests have.
Providing us with your guest list and a brief description of the event is recommended as a courtesy, but not required.
As we march toward our goal of opening our brick and mortar store, our member-owners are an integral piece to the success of our efforts. These gatherings are a proven way to encourage others you know to join our efforts. If you have any questions or this has inspired you to go to your calendar to pick a date, contact the Co-op at email@example.com.
