LEAF’s executive director, Gerardo Espinoza, was recently asked to join the board of the Food Co-op Initiative (FCI). For over ten years, FCI has helped hundreds of communities across the country who want to start food co-ops by providing information, training and technical assistance, and seed capital. LEAF and FCI have worked together for many years in their shared mission to provide healthy food to more people and introduce communities to the power of cooperatives. Gerardo looks forward to being even more involved with this great organization as a member of its board.
