Common Wealth Inc - SA - Just Add Love
 
 
 
Common Wealth Inc. was founded in 1986 by a diverse group that included religious leaders, trades people, unemployed workers and community activists. The founders shared a concern about the health and welfare of workers in the Mahoning Valley. Using a strategy of regional sustainable economic development, CW has been at the forefront addressing agriculture, healthy food and social capital formation. This has led to the development of the Lake to River Food Hub which includes 4 farmer’s markets, a shared use commercial kitchen, a cooperative made up of producers, institutional and commercial buyers and consumers.
