On Wednesday, October 20th the Friendly City Food Co-op announced both the closing of a new $50,000 loan from the Staunton Creative Community Fund and the selection of its building contractor, Harman Construction Company.  The check was presented at the Friendly City Food Co-op’s storefront on Wolfe Street in Harrisonburg, where building renovations will begin shortly.

“We couldn’t be more exctied,” said Ben Sandel, President of the Friendly City Food Cooperative.  “Launching the Friendly City Food Co-op has truly been a community-based effort, with our members, lenders, and volunteers all playing a vital role in the process.”

“The Friendly City Food Co-op epitomizes the type of projects we seek to support, generating downtown revitalization, forging community-based partnerships, and building infrastructure that supports local farmers and healthy eating choices.  We are so proud to be helping the co-op reach its fundraising goals,” said Meghan Williamson, Executive Director of the Staunton Creative Community Fund.
