Food Co-op Initiative

The Food Co-op Initiative aims to serve as a support system that provides an array of resources and programs for emerging retail grocery cooperatives. The development model combines experience from consultants, start-up groups, and experienced co-op founders to guide the design and implementation of start-up cooperatives. In 2011, The Food Co-op Initiative's Seed Fund, which was created to provide financial grants up to $10,000 to early development co-op organizing groups, made grants of a total of more than $100,000 to 16 new retail cooperatives.
