How to be a Member

One thing the Coop is not, is a discount warehouse. We are instead a member-run & sustained non-profit organization. We cannot function without our members investing their time in the store or on a committee, as well as monetarily by shopping & paying dues. Learn more about what it means to be a member of a food coop, and how to participate!
