The First Farmers Market in Minnesota to Accept SNAP
The Corcoran Neighborhood Organization (CNO) came into being in 1975 through a grassroots effort by neighborhood residents to establish Corcoran Park on the site of a closed school. Building on this victory, CNO has continued to unite and equip neighbors to improve and protect the neighborhood. CNO serves as a nonpartisan information source, spokesperson, and advocate for the community on civic affairs, and strives to engage community members on issues that may have a positive or negative impact on the community. CNO unites neighbors to strengthen its community, envisioning the community as a place that fosters leadership, engagement, and a sense of belonging.
