Eat to Live board says working on business plan
The Eat to Live Food Cooperative on South Salina Street closed its doors due to a lack of funding after being open less than three months, but its board is addressing the issues that caused its closing in hopes of reopening it this spring.

“We put all these different workshops together that would be kind of a nice balance between more technological skills – we’re going to do web design today and bike repair – to more so-called primitive skills, like gardening or building a structure,” said Susannah Sayler, co-director of the Canary Project.
