Bismarck region food cooperative clings to financial difficulties
BISMARCK, ND (AP) – The BisMan community food cooperative recently held a ceremony celebrating five years of providing local food to the area, but financial problems have put a damper on food, live music and more festivities, said Executive Director Shirley Reese.
“It should be a time of absolute celebration, but we have to think about how we’re going to spend another five years,” she said. “It’s a reality check for each owner member. Do we want this to continue for another five years or do we mean that there are no more food co-ops in North Dakota? “
