Port Townsend Food Coop Friend of Quimper Grange


The PT Food Coop has been a long time supporter of Quimper Grange both contributing to programs during Cooperative Month (October) and making donations of food and a Cooper Card to help pay for refreshments at fundraising events. There are a very small number of active members who organize the concerts, dances and educational events that garner donations to help improve and maintain Quimper Grange's hall and grounds, ten at the most. It has been immensely helpful to receive the support of The Port Townsend Food Coop to provide refreshments at these events. By supporting Quimper Grange The Port Townsend Food Coop is also supporting the Quimper Grange Food Bank Garden. The Grange donates use of land and pays for water to grow crops for the food bank. Last year the garden donated over 3,000 pounds of food to the food bank. But this garden could not exist if there were no Quimper Grange. Thank you PT Food Coop!
