Because I do research on local investing, friends and family will often ask me about the steps they should take to move their money into their community. The first recommendation I give them is to take their money out of our nations largest banks and put it into their local credit unions and community development funds. But after that first step there are hundreds of different actions and possibilities for how to invest your money where your house is.
This comic on co-op equity as an investment explains how investing money with your local food cooperative is a great, cost-effective, and delicious choice! You can also download a high quality pdf of this comic.
