Or trying to at least. The Paso Food Co-op is working its way to a goal of 500 members. When the co-op reaches 200 members, it will start searching for a site to plop on down, and it was only eight members away from that milestone on Feb. 20. "Envision your own grocery store," the co-op's website states. "It's stocked to fully represent the local, fresh, and healthy products produced in and around San Luis Obispo County." Sounds pretty neat (check out its website at pasofoodcooperative.com to learn more). Δ
