The Eat To Live Food Cooperative is a consumer-owned cooperative. When you join the Co-op, you are more than a shopper. You own it!
The Co-op is a democratic organization: every member gets one vote. Unlike for-profit corporations where one share equals one vote and the big money controls, in the Co-op every member has an equal vote.
Each member buys a $100 Membership Certificate. This one-time $100 investment entitles you to full membership in the Co-op. Two adults in the same household to be named to a shared membership.
You may make your $100 membership investment when you join. Or you may make a $10 investment per month over ten months, plus a one-time $5 processing fee.
Whichever option you choose, your investment will be redeemed should you decide to leave the Co-op at a later date, provided the Co-op has received replacement capital from new members.
When you join, you will receive a membership card with your own member number. Present your card each time you make a purchase at the Co-op and your purchase will be automatically recorded in your membership account. At the year’s end, if a patronage fund is offered, your refund will be calculated from the total in this account.
You can become a member-owner by signing up on the Eat To Live Food Co-op website and making your investment in the Co-op for your Membership Certificate. You have two payment options:
1. $100 for a Membership Certificate when you join.
2. $15 when you join, which includes a $5 processing fee, and then $10 per month for 9 more months.
