If you want to seriously change inequality there is a small thing you can do. Support a small southern US black owned coop so they can pasteurize their awesome pecan milk to have a longer shelf life so they can ship it. pecanmilk.com/ This coop must survive but they are in a catch-22 where they do not make enough to qualify for a loan. Their product is so good that it will be a sustainable coop venture. Without us they have no real way out. Ideas are welcomed.

@FreeScholar This is cool, do you know if they have any other sites/social? Right now their site is being redesigned, so it is pretty sparse.

@FreeScholar have you considered making a proposal on Loomio to use some of the reserves to support this pecan milk ? One of the cooperative principles is helping other coops

@FreeScholar I guess they're already trying to partner with local restaurants, coffee shops, etc.?

@FreeScholar Can we assume that they've already reached out to the Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund? Are they the ones would can't help finance them?

@FreeScholar any more info on that? Their website has a donate button but I’m not finding any narrative around it
