They cost $100 for a lifetime membership, according to Kari Froehlich, a member of the co-op’s board.

Members will receive a monthly newsletter, a decal for their vehicle and discounted classes and events. The co-op is also working to partner with local businesses to provide a discount to members.

Once the food co-op store opens, Froehlich said if there is a profit at the end of each year, members will receive a rebate.

She said their goal is to open a store within two years.

Volunteers and donations are welcome.
