Your first step in becoming an owner is to come to an Owner Orientation. It only takes about an hour, and is a perfect opportunity to ask any and all questions you may have. From there, you will learn about our ownership policies, how the Co-op works, and how to sign up for work shifts or a committee. Once you've attended an orientation, signed an Ownership Agreement, and enrolled in an equity investment payment plan, you can begin shopping at owner prices.
Orientations are held at the Co-op:
Bushwick Food Cooperative
2 Porter Avenue, Suite 107 (The Loom). View our calendar for upcoming orientation dates. Please sign up for an orientation in advance using the link above.
You can pay your equity investment or enroll in a monthly payment plan at your Orientation. Reduced equity investments are available for qualifying owners. For more information on equity, please see the Ownership Manual.
Our Co-op runs on owner work. Everyone who joins invests time to maintain & further the mission of providing affordable local & sustainable foods to our community. For more information on owner work requirements, please see the Ownership Manual.
