Own the Co-op

Owners of the Missoula Community Food Co-op get to:

  •  Buy high quality local, bulk, organic and whole foods at affordable prices, which continue to go down as our sales increase. Through our working members, we are able to keep our mark-up significantly lower than anywhere else, passing savings on to you.
  • Participate in the operation of a democratically-run business where, as a voting member-owner, your voice counts.
  • Strengthen the economy, build community, and increase our food security by supporting local farmers and producers.
  • Work with fellow owners toward a common vision, through true cooperation.
  • Receive weekly emails about in-store specials, including the weekly “veggie bag,” $13 for a bounty of that week’s produce.
  • Be creative, get inspired, and have fun!
