Littleton Food Co-op boosted by impact investment

A community grocery in the North Country is set to expand with help from a $200,000 loan from the Foundation’s Impact Investment Fund in partnership with the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund. The Littleton Food Co-op, which opened in 2009, will create 23 new full-time jobs and make healthy foods more available to low-income families. The co-op purchases $1.9 million a year in goods from local vendors, a figure that is projected to grow with the planned expansion. Expansion is set to be completed by summer of 2017.
