Allendale Strong is working with Food Co-op Initiative to open Allendale Corner Store CO-OP in the neighborhood.The Detroit People's Food Co-op is becoming a physical reality - look at that progress! The Co-op will lease the first floor of the building, and the top floor will be the Detroit Food Commons, where classes and food business development opportunities for their community will take place.
