By Erica Peiffer, Member Services Coordinator

Becoming a Co-op member-owner not only makes good economic sense, it’s a choice that affords many social benefits! You’re joining a dynamic community of happy, healthy people that are invested in a creative vision to transform the future. Membership demonstrates a commitment toward building a sustainable business that is open to everyone, operates democratically, and supports an ethical and resilient local food system. Your membership share contributes to the collective capital that sustains our mission to enhance physical and social health in our community. All that – plus discounts, special member services, exclusive offers at partnering businesses, access to our Federal Credit Union, and a vote in Co-op elections!

The membership share is an investment of $100 that is paid once and entitles you and your household to the benefits of one membership. There are no annual fees or dues, and the share is fully refundable. You have nothing to lose, and a community to gain!

If you’re considering joining our Co-op community, or have someone in mind to refer, now is the time! The Co-op is hosting a Member Drive on Saturday, July 15- Sunday, July 23 with fun activities and promotions.

  • New members receive a free gift and are entered in a drawing to win a $50 gift card! It’s easy to join; just stop by Customer Service to fill out an application and make a payment toward your share. You can pay all at once, or in $25 quarterly installments.
  • Current members can spin the prize wheel for a chance to win free products and merchandise! Co-op staff will be in front of the store during select hours each day with samples and a prize wheel.
  • Community Partners will be on-site with special demos and giveaways during the Local Business Expo on July 15! See the event listings on the back page for more details.

We hope you’ll join us during this year’s Member Drive!
