Moscow Food Co-op
WORKING TOGETHER TO NOURISH AND NURTURE OUR COMMUNITY
The Moscow Food Co-op was established in 1973. We are guided by our 7,400 owners and welcome anyone to shop in our store. We are governed by a democratically elected seven-member Board.
Both the story of our Co-op’s past and our Co-op’s future are rooted in the cooperative values and principles as expressed through the International Cooperative Alliance. For over 40 years we have promoted our cooperative identity by being good stewards of the earth and each other. Through providing healthy food, we have created a healthier planet and a stronger, healthier community. We have built our cooperative community based on the recognition that we are stronger together.
As noted by the International Co-operative Alliance, “Co-operatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.”
