For nearly fifty years Kokua Market has supported local agriculture, food security and healthy lifestyles and provided a space for folks to build community and cooperative spirit.
Kokua members and supporters have put together a plan to address and overcome recent financial issues. We are raising capital funds to relaunch the co-op. Enthusiasm is high, and so far the response to our long-term restructuring plan has been tremendous.
But, in the short term, we need a little more breathing space to get the restructuring plan in place. Your Go Fund Me donation right now is needed to keep the lights on, employees paid and the store open through March. If we can hold onto our lease for another 30 days, we have the chance to reboot successfully.
Please visit our Go Fund Me page and tell your friends to kōkua Kokua however they can. Every bit helps. Mahalo!<! ---------- !>
