A food co-op is a grocery store that is owned by the people in the community, rather than by a corporation. This means you can buy everything you need — with a one stop shop — and the money spent goes directly back into the local community! This boosts our economy by providing jobs for people who live here, producers who grow & raise food here, and artisans and crafters who create, right here in Kitsap County. A Store Featuring Locally Grown Food The ample rain and sunshine that bless our peninsula yield a bountiful array of crops and freshly grown organic goods from our local farms. Once we open our doors, our store will be the central place for you to find the delicious and healthy locally grown food that our region is famous for. We know that it’s hard to navigate the entire county to find all this local, healthy food for your family – so join now so we can make this a reality. Why You Should Join Us Invest in and own the future of Kitsap County Keep money local – for every $1,000 spent, $1,604 is generated for the local economy! Bring year-round access to safe, labeled food for our neighbors, friends, and families Support local food and producers Have a voice in how your store is run, what products are sold, and earn dividends Create a gathering place focused on community and healthy living The co-op will also impact our local community in other ways, find out the details on our Community Benefits page.
