Ambler Food Co-op Committees
Since January 25, 2012 community members have come together and organized to form committees that meet regularly, plan and oversee the co-op’s activities. In addition to the officers, there are several dozen other folks who are members of these committees and are offering their time and talents to the Ambler Food Co-op project.
