Shareholder Benefits

About Shareholder Benefits



You’ll be supporting local farms, businesses, families, non-profit organizations, and even the planet through the sustainable practices of the Co-op. You’ll also be invited to connect with others in the community through Co-op events and classes and shareholder volunteer opportunities made available for social and community engagement.

About 50% of the proceeds that come into the Co-op are reinvested into our community in the form of wages, taxes, contributions, and purchases.

You’ll have the exclusive right to cast a vote for the Board of Directors members, attend the Annual Shareholders Meeting, vote on bylaw changes, and you may also run for the Board of Directors.

Through volunteer involvement, you may earn a shareholder in-store discount, be offered shareholder offers such as shareholder-specific sales and promotions, and even be eligible to receive patronage dividends based on your spending on years that dividends are awarded.

Working Shareholders who volunteer 2 hours per month at one of our participating Commitment to Community partners, receive a 5% discount on purchases made at the Co-op.

Food For All Shareholders receive a 10% discount on purchases made at the Co-op, excluding beer & wine. Food For All Shareholders who also volunteer 2 hours per month at one of our participating Commitment to Community partners may receive an additional 5% discount, for a total of 15% off purchases at the Co-op, excluding beer & wine purchases.
