As a food co-op, we are controlled by our member-owners and not outside investors. When we moved to 4824 Baltimore Ave. back in 2012, we could not have done so without the help and generosity of member loans from our co-op community.
This year, we returned 17 member loans in the amount of $103,000 with interest of $21,885 for a total of $124,885.
Principle 5: Education, Training, and Information
We re-introduced member-owner orientation!
In August, we started doing monthly orientations for new member-owners and current member-owners, alike! We have had so much fun talking about co-ops, benefits, and meeting the community. The next date for orientation is January 8th at the Cedar Works.
Principle 6 and 7: Cooperation Among Cooperatives and Concern For The Community
We have donated over $35,000 to more than 60 local and cooperative organizations!
