Become an Owner

The Community Food Co-op is Bellingham’s only consumer-owned grocery store. That means if you join, you own it. In return, we pledge to serve our owners with quality products and honest information. Our purpose is not to generate a profit for a single owner but to stay financially strong so we can serve the needs of the owners and to give back to the community.

Owner Benefits

For more information about being an owner, see our Owner Benefits brochure. After you join, we’ll provide you with a copy of our Member Owner Brochure. Learn more about How to Shop the Co-op.

How to Join

You can sign up at any register or the service desk.

Ownership requires a one-time fully refundable capital investment of $90, or you can pay a minimum $3 per month to maintain your membership until you’re paid in full.

Owners pay a $5 annual owner dues, which is non-refundable.

The capital investment and annual fees are waived for seniors age 62 or older.
