The Richmond Food Co-op will be a member-owned full service grocery store providing affordable, local, sustainable and healthy food options.
We are happy to announce that the Richmond Food Co-op has identified a site for our store!
We will be setting up shop at 1200 Westover Hills Boulevard.
The last few years of organizing have built a strong foundation and at over 1000 member/owners strong, we are ready to take the next steps to get our doors open. Thanks to everyone who has played a part in getting the Co-op started!
When you become a member, you also become an owner of a member-owned and member-controlled local store, that operates for the mutual benefit of all members. The Richmond Food Co-op focuses on people before profit and is driven not to maximize profits, but rather to increase Richmond’s access to quality sustainable food.
Co-ops are member-owned, member-serving and member-driven organizations that use a democratic model to promote sustainable development. The Richmond Food Co-op is owned exclusively by its members, and each member holds an equal share of the business. All member/owners can participate in the democratic governance of their store.
- Membership means ownership.
- Co-op ownership means putting your dollars where your values are.
- Co-ops are 100% owned and controlled by their member/owners.
- Co-op equals community.
