PRICELESS BENEFITS

The Elk River Area Food Co-op is a start-up, member-owned grocery store. 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 & efforts.

In the mean time we've worked hard to provide priceless benefits for our current 370+ (and growing) member-owners and the community at large. 

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.
