Check out the ways in which WEFC has been funded, in order to get to where we are today.
Community Bonds were sold prior to the opening of the store, for people wanting to invest in bringing local, healthy, fresh food to the neighbourhood.
Grants (such as the Metcalf grant, Cooperators, Ontario Trillium Foundation, and others) were also important in helping us to get to our next stages.
Donations have always been helpful, and still continue to be.
And now with our increasingly successful food co-op generating more and more revenue, we are growing increasingly less dependent upon the other streams of income-generation.
