New Orleans Food Co-op

Opening its cooperative store in early 2011, the New Orleans Food Co-op currently operates a public grocery store that is built on a member-ownership model along with several programs that focus on enriching the community and expanding its mission to provide access to healthy food at a fair price, promote local and regional food production, keep capital and jobs in the community, and function as a center of community activity.  As of 2013, 3,300 community members had invested in the co-op, and sales reached over $681,000, an increase of nearly 16 percent from 2012.
