What is a Food Co-op You Ask?

In the most simple terms, a food co-op is a grocery store that is jointly-owned and democratically governed by its member-owners – by the people, for the people. It’s everything a traditional grocery store is and more because it prioritizes the needs of the community!

Each food co-op has it’s own flavor – Learn more about the Electric City Food Co-op here.
