WOODSTOCK – A McHenry County Food Cooperative and local food assessment presentation will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at the McHenry County Farm Bureau, 1102 McConnell Road.
Presentations will be made by the McHenry County Food and Farmland Task Force, the McHenry County Farm Bureau and the McHenry County Food Cooperative.
The McHenry County Food and Farmland Task Force was formed to conduct a comprehensive local food assessment within McHenry County. The task force is led by Openlands, a regional land conservation organization, which seeks to survey producers, consumers, restaurants, chefs, caterers and grocery stores regarding local food use within the county.
The McHenry County Food Cooperative’s vision is to launch a member-owned and run grocery store (food cooperative) promoting a healthy, ethical and resilient community with a full product line.
