A local group is hoping to attract support for a natural food co-op in Fairbanks.
“We felt there was a need in the community for it,” said Dave Lacey, one of the leads on the project. “We can’t depend on corporate or government to take care of us. We’re at the end of the supply line up here.”
The core group of about one dozen people are in the process of incorporating with the state and raising money for a feasibility study to determine if Fairbanks has a viable market for local, natural foods.
