APRIL 2024 News

Updated: May 19

Hello Pullman Good Food Co-op Member/Owners, 

 

It’s been a busy few months for The Pullman Good Food Co-op, as we’ve signed the Purchase Sale Agreement (PSA) for the property at 1095 SE Bishop Blvd, and we’re now working to raise the funds needed for the down payment and monthly costs for the near future, and we need your support urgently. Our #1 priority at the moment is to raise $750,000 within the next 45 days to ensure a food co-op in Pullman, and if we don’t hit that goal in time, the store will not be able to move forward.

“Start the Store!” and make the PGFC a reality.
