Prairie Roots Food Cooperative, Fargo’s first member owned cooperative grocery store, is closing in on a milestone in its capital campaign. Memberships and donations will allow Prairie Roots to open its doors in downtown Fargo by the end of 2016.
More than $70,000 has been raised toward the Burgum family matching grant of $100,000. Doug Burgum, founder of Kilbourne Group, announced his family’s contribution at 1 Million Cups on October 30.
Interest and commitment from the community have been strong, and Prairie Roots is on track to meet its goal of $1.1 million raised by year end.
