To. 9 Area I>y Chronicle CwtMpwdwrt A food cooperative (co-op) has been set up by .the Black Business League (BBL) to aid black families and unify the black community, according to X. Williamson. A co-op seeks to buy items in volume which saves the individual members a considerable amount of money. "We hope to save families anywhere from 20 to 40 percent on the items they buy through the co-op," Williamson said. The co-op will be formed initially with small groups and distribution points will be set up to make sure families get the items they order. "The purpose really is to teach black mothers how to buy food at a reduced rate by buying together. We want to teach them home economics which is saving money." The program is a non-profit making venture of the BBL. "We're not in it to make money," Williamson said. "We're trying to help our community." In addition, he said "this really is a self-help program. We believe in self-help." Williamson said the co-op is just one way his group is trying to unify both local black businesses and the black y community. Williamson also said the federal government has made a cuiuiiuuiiciii 10 give some money to the program "once they see the program as a help to the community. "We talked to a representative of the Agriculture Department and they gave us Opportu Ill i,?| ALEM * s jp Set 4 id R1 Resid a definite committment for some fiinds. Depending, of course, on our help to the community." Initial registration for membership in the co-op is $10. "This is basically for settino the program up," Williamson .said. "Then the members will be able to buy whatever foodstuffs they want at savings from 20 to 40 per cent." Williamson said his group hopes to include everyone in the community but because it is new they will work with small groups and grow to include everyone.

"We're hoping too that some of the recipients will be able to handle the whole outlet themselves." Co-ops have worked successfully in many parts of the country. It works on the premise that volume buying cuts out the middle-man (retailer) and allows the co-op to deal directly with the wholesaler. Eliminating the retailer's profit usually means a substantial savings to members of the co-op. # W^ 5p' WmjM I i^tt^m * B?.; '^fiW| MHgr * .v-^^MB^jljfl^^H :ty Neal. performed recently at ad bone of tiny tote. iazes Tots "I love kids," Curly said in a recent interview.
