THE CO-OP MISSION
The Silverton Food Co-op’s mission is to be a community-owned grocery store that provides convenient access to a variety of locally raised or produced foods and other products and to foster a healthy and economically viable environment for our farmers and our community.
We are committed to acting cooperatively. We encourage each owner to contribute to and participate in all activities we undertake as a cooperative. We support other co-ops and cooperative efforts and educate our owners and our community about consumer issues and the cooperative movement.
The co-op will be owned by the community. Yes—YOU will be able to own the grocery store you shop at. And, not only can you own a share of the store, that share will give you an equal voice in the democratic process of the store.
