BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP

Everyone is welcome!

When you join the co-op, you will be helping to increase access to healthy foods in East Biloxi. And once the store opens, you will save money while supporting a robust local food economy, sustainable practices, and community programs. You become a part-owner of the co-op because we are owned and operated by our community members.

 

To become a member-owner, fill out a membership form and submit payment for a one-time equity share of $100.There is no requirement to volunteer your time or work at the co-op to become a member. Once paid in full, your co-op membership is refundable should you move away or change your mind. You only join the co-op once — there are no reoccurring annual fees.

Join our community and let's build health and wealth together.
