Redeem your 2014 Patronage Dividend by December 31

The patronage dividend is how the Co-op shares profits with its member-owners. Learn more by reading our FAQs.

Dividend notifications were mailed in early August. Member-owners needed to have spent $739 or more at the Co-op in 2014 to qualify for the minimum $4 patronage dividend. If you believe you were eligible to receive a dividend but a notification was not delivered to your mailing address, ask at any register or at the service desk to verify your eligibility. If you were eligible but did not receive a notification in the mail, please update your mailing address at the service desk.

Member-owners’ dividends are redeemable at any Co-op register for merchandise, or you can request a check. If you do not want to use your dividend, consider donating it to the Co-op’s Farm Fund, the Round Up at the Register campaign to benefit the Community Shopping Day organization of the month, or to one of the other groups we are collecting money for at our registers.

Co-op Board Supports Boycott of Driscoll’s Products

Familias Unidas por la Justicia (FUJ), a local independent farmworker union, asked the Co-op to discontinue purchasing products from Driscoll’s. The FUJ is organizing at Sakuma Bros. Farms in Skagit Valley for fair pay, regular breaks, and the elimination of wage theft. Sakuma packs blackberries and blueberries under the Driscoll’s label. In the Board’s view, Sakuma has not been negotiating in good faith with FUJ and has taken retaliatory and anti-union actions.

The Board does not take this step lightly. It is our strongly held belief that shoppers should be free to make their own purchasing decisions. In this case, however, the Board felt that agreeing to the FUJ request was the best way to support their good faith efforts to improve working conditions for farmworkers at Sakuma Bros. We support FUJ and we are encouraging other food cooperatives to join in solidarity with the farmworkers, as we have.

Read a fact sheet and the Board’s letter to Driscoll’s, or pick up copies of these materials at the service desk. More information is also available at

Message to Members on Eden Foods

In our view, Eden Foods’ federal lawsuit seeking the right to opt out of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandate to provide contraceptive coverage is contrary to the fundamental cooperative values of fairness, equal access, and democracy. We also see this action as fundamentally at odds with Eden’s stated goal, “To maintain a healthy, respectful…environment for employees.” –Co-op Board of Directors
