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!

Current Volunteer Needs

Elk River Farmers Market - Thursdays from 3-7 p.m. [SIGN UP HERE]

Elk RiverFEST - Saturday, July 7th from 2:15-7:30 p.m. [SIGN UP HERE]


There are endless ways you can get involved, here are just a few:


Word of mouth and social media are our two biggest forms of promotion. We look to our community to help spread the word. 


We are looking for Community Members who are willing to take on a larger role and donate 1-5 hours per month plus attend one monthly committee meeting.

The general purpose of all committees is to assist the Board of Directors in filling its responsibilities to the membership. Committee members play a supportive role to the board by doing research, gathering information, tabulating data, making comparisons, determining cost options, and presenting recommendations to the board.
