The more members we gain, the sooner we open our doors!
The Elk River Area Food Co-op is a start-up,
member-owned grocery store.
We are dedicated to providing access to high quality, local, natural and organic food at a fair price; supporting local farmers and contributing economically to the community.
Currently, we do not have a physical location. In order to open our doors we need to have a healthy, loyal membership base. Proving to us, and our future lenders, that our community supports the co-op vision and efforts.
The cooperative idea is more than a physical store, it is a grass-roots movement to bring the power back to the individual. Co-op's are built on the idea that local owners, not far-away investors, direct the business and gain the benefits of success.
