co-op-er-ate v.  To work together toward a common cause.

co-op-er-a-tive adj.  Willing to cooperate with others.

Baker Food Co-op is a cooperative that is owned and operated by our members.  As such we can only offer the services that the member-owners provide through working here.  If we don’t have enough working member-owners, then we will have to cut back on our services.

There are wonderful privileges that come with being a member-owner of the Co-op as you know, but there is also the responsibility of doing your part to keep it going.  Get informed about the Co-op’s business, attend the membership meetings, give us your ideas, come and work!  It’s fun…and you can earn up to 30% in discounts!

Thanks! Vera

From the Working Member Coordinator

The Marketing Seminar we had on February 25th was a big success due to Valerie’s hard work on the presentation.  She did a lot of research and came up with some good ideas to spark the creativity of the department heads and staff.

We hope to use those ideas to make our store more appealing.  Be watching for the “new look” as we work  together to implement some changes.

You can be a part of the “fun”, too.  Join our team of Working Members & work 2-10 hours a month for a 10-30% discount!
