Vision Statements

Vision
Monashee Community Co-op strives to provide the community with wholesome food and crafts, which are produced locally whenever possible.
The Co-op promotes:
  • Food Security
  • Stewardship of the Environment
  • the Health of the People who Consume Co-op products
  • the Economic Viability of the People who Provide Co-op Products
  • Respect for the Health and Well-being of the Animals that Provide our Food
The Co-Op is  committed to practicing cooperative economics and educating the community about the relationship between food and health.

Our Co-Op works to benefit all of our members collectively – all profits are shared among members in the form of growth. As the Co-Op grows, profits are put back into members' pockets through lower grocery cost and more stock variety.

Mission
To provide wholesome food and crafts while promoting local, environmentally responsible and ethical agriculture.
