IT ALL STARTED WITH AN IDEA INSPIRED BY A VOID
Two local woman were tired of running around from store-to-store to purchase healthy, organic and local foods. They began researching co-op’s and through a marketing feasibility study found that a food co-op is exactly what the Elk River Area is looking for.
THE SEED WAS PLANTED &
THE ELK RIVER AREA FOOD CO-OP WAS BORN
Though we are still in the start up stages [with no physical location], we are dedicated to creating a space where the community can come together and fill their carts with trustworthy, reliable, safe, ethically treated, sustainably-just products. Since that first conversation in 2013, the Elk River Area Food Co-op has incorporated and grown to over 315 member-owners with a nine person Board of Directors.
& We Continue to Grow
We’ve been in the newspaper, learning at the conferences and holding health education classes. Though we don’t have a brick and mortar at the moment, we do provide our members with amazing benefits. With 17 local partnerships (and growing) you can get discounts on fresh greens, affordable meats, home delivered eggs, hand-made soaps, fitness motivation and so much more! As a member you also receive discounts on all of our community classes.
