Creating a community-owned grocery store in Binghamton that will help us feed our families healthy food, support local farms, and create local jobs.
The Many Hands Co-op is a member-owned food co-op dedicated to social, fiscal and environmental responsibility.
Our goal is to provide the community with access to affordable and nutritious food options as well as education and outreach while strengthening the local food system by incorporating locally produced goods.
Binghamton has many food deserts. Many of us are without an affordable, accessible grocery store, and we are disconnected from our local food system, especially if we lack transportation options. This is detrimental to our health, our community, and our local economy. In collaboration with the Binghamton Regional Sustainability Coalition, the Many Hands Food Co-op is working to bridge this gap.
MHFC is creating a community-owned grocery store that will help us feed our families healthy food, support local farms, and create local jobs. A cooperative food market will provide an affordable, convenient, locally oriented, and healthy option to supplement chain grocery stores. The Many Hands Food Co-op will serve as a place to nurture our sense of community and to come together around food. We will offer a full range of groceries from fresh fruits and vegetables and bulk foods to health and household products.
With your help, this cooperative operation will reconnect us to our local food network, create local jobs, improve property values, enrich neighborhoods, support local farmers, producers, and artisans, and enhance the local economy.
