Our vision at Carbondale Community Food Coop is to be a community-owned natural and organic food store.
We are committed to maintaining a community-owned natural food store in Carbondale, Colorado. We are committed to serving our customers and members by providing healthy, organic, and sustainable food and products and encouraging informed choices. We are dedicated to paying our staff livable wages while providing a pleasant place to shop and work and live at the base of beautiful Mt. Sopris.
Members own the CCFC. Member shares and annual dues are needed to pay back our loan and explore the option of expanding the store. Without members, there could be no food co-op. It is the sale of member shares that creates the fundamental co-op equity to maintain our store front and pay employees.
When your membership is paid in full, you can reap the benefit of being an owner of the CCFC. Every weekend members receive 5% off their purchases. Members receive substantial savings on bulk purchases. Members also have the opportunity to volunteer in the store and receive up to 25% discount on their purchases. Members can also receive periodic e-updates from the CCFC. All owner-members have a vote in major decisions and an opportunity to elect and/or serve on the Board of Directors.
