Ends Policies

Everything that happens in and with the Brattleboro Food Co-op is in order to further its “Ends Policies,” which are, in the governance system that the Board of Directors uses, the overarching goals for the organization. These are the priorities for our cooperative, to benefit our members and community:

The Brattleboro Food Co-op Ends Policies:

  1. Reasonably priced food and products with an emphasis on healthy, locally grown, organic, and fairly traded goods;
  2. A welcoming community marketplace;
  3. A workplace community where cooperative values are modeled;
  4. A regenerative business that has a net positive environmental impact;
  5. A sustainable local economy;
  6. Relevant information about food and related products, 
the environment, and the Cooperative Values and Principles;
  7. Reasonable access to participation in the cooperative.
