What's to love about food co-ops? So much! Co-ops have a cool way of doing things differently. They're people working together for better food, stronger communities and a healthier world. And cooperative grocers are making a big impact. Supporting Local Food Systems and Sustainable Foods.
Our second floor Community Room is available weekday evenings for workshops and meetings. We have the capacity for about 25 participants seated classroom-style.
Co-op Green Stamp Program:
Shoppers receive a green stamp on a card for every shopping bag they bring them, or when they ride their bikes to the co-op. 10 stamps = $1. Shoppers have the option to donate filled cards to the organization of the month or to redeem them for cash or merchandise. We typically award our co-op green stamp program donations to local nonprofits that serve our community in areas such as social justice, education, or environmental protection.
