LEAF Approves Loan to Dill Pickle!

DILL PICKLELEAF is excited to announce that we have recently approved a loan to Dill Pickle Food Co-op in Chicago, Illinois.

Dill Pickle has been offering healthy and sustainable food options from its store in Logan Square since 2006, and, with the help of financing from LEAF,  Shared Capital Cooperative, and The Chicago Community Loan Fund, they will be relocating to a new venue nearby more than tripling their space and increasing healthy food access to thousands more families! The cooperative currently has 13 employees, and is expected to grow to 31 employees after the move.

The co-op’s mission is “to offer healthy food choices and the benefits of cooperative practices to build a vibrant local community and a more sustainable world.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
