Food fights cancer!
Town & Country Co-op believes that in our lifetime we will successfully find the cure to the cancers that devastate the lives of our family and friends. We are committed to being part of that cure.
In 2015, Town & Country donated $45,473 to The OSU Cancer Center for research. Together with 4 other cooperatives we raised $139,521.35!
To accomplish that goal, employees actively raise funds for cancer research being done by OSU-The James and the Center for Advanced Functional Foods Research and Entrepreneurship. This exciting research promotes the role that agriculture and food science play, along with medical research, in finding the cure.
Our customers and company are committed to growing the most healthy crops and food products; if we find that these crops are “what the doctor prescribes” for cancer prevention and/or cure, we’ll celebrate this success for several lifetimes!
