Ministry Partner of the Month: Revision
Revision works with people in marginalized neighborhoods to develop leaders, cultivate community food systems, and grow a resilient local economy. Through Re:Farm Denver, we work with low-income families to start their own backyard gardens (300 gardens this year!), and cultivate two urban farms. Through Re:Unite, we train and employ community members as promotoras who then work to organize and educate their neighbors through a train-the-trainers model. Finally, Re:Own coalesces all this work into greater economic opportunities by helping these families to start the Westwood Food Cooperative – the first urban, multi-stakeholder food-based cooperative business in Denver!
The Westwood Food Cooperative (WFC) will be a full-service grocery store in Denver, CO that is owned and operated by community members. It will be one of the first grocery stores of its kind, providing communities living in a food desert access to affordable and healthy food.
The WFC operations and products reflect deep community values through working primarily with Colorado’s rural farmers, partnering with other cooperative services, and providing a space where food can be grown by the community, for the community.
For the first time ever, the WFC is opening memberships to the Denver community at large. Join now, and help build the WFC from the ground up! For more information, visit http://www.westwoodfood.coop.
