We are committed to building an inclusive economy that gives everyone the opportunity to live a well-nourished life and removes any obstacles of becoming a member-owner! We offer low to no-cost shares through donations to our Solidarity Share Fund.
If you are self-identified Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color, your member-ownership is $0.
By becoming a Common Share Food Co-op member-owner you are joining our movement for food justice, an inclusive economy, and a community third space in the Amherst area!
As a member-owner, you are an actual owner of the co-op and you can:
- receive certain discounts and can participate in members-only truckload sales
- get annual dividends in profitable years based on a percentage of how much you spend at the Co-op
- participate in all the democratic decision-making that goes up for a vote
- run for a seat on the Board of Directors
