We’re more than just a grocery store

Co-ops exist to serve the needs of their members–the people who own and use the co-op. The profits generated by East End Food Co-op are returned to member-owners and their communities in the form of member discounts, investments in store improvements, and donations to local non-profits. When you join the East End Food Co-op, you invest $100 in our community-owned store. This investment (or share) can be paid all at once or in $25 installments. Your membership share is completely refundable and there are no annual fees or dues.

Why Join?

Investing in a membership strengthens an alternative business model that believes in putting people and planet before profit. As a Co-op Member-Owner, you support a sustainable regional food infrastructure, fair labor standards, and environmental responsibility. Plus there are plenty of benefits!
