We need YOUR help!
Creating a co-op takes a lot of hard work and dedication.
Co-op's are COMMUNITY OWNED, meaning we look to our friends and neighbors to help build awareness. The Elk River Area Food Co-op is growing and we need volunteers to support our development. We are always looking for extra hands to make the co-op a reality.
Even if you can't commit your time,
remember that word of mouth is the most effective form of awareness.
Let everyone know there is a co-op coming to town!
