Why a Food Co-op?
Boosts Local Economy
A food co-op is a grocery store owned and controlled by the community—anyone may become a member. Our co-op will operate for the mutual benefit of all members, returning profits to the community through programming, discounts, and lower costs.
Increases Access to Healthy Food
By joining together, co-op members gain access to products, services or markets not otherwise available to them. Our co-op will value equality among member-owners, enrichment of the community, and support of local sustainable products.
Fosters Active Community
Healthy food is just one part of the equation. Our co-op will be an active hub where community members can gather to share, learn, and explore together.
