Become a Board Member: Like being a leader? Love grassroots organizing? Join us in making this a reality! Email us if you are interested in a leadership role or volunteering with the Ventura Food Co-op.
Become a Member: Membership is the lifeblood of a co-op: Co-op membership is an investment in your community, local farmers, small businesses and healthy, sustainable products.
Everyone can shop at the Co-op, but by becoming a member you are becoming a part owner of a mission-driven cooperative market rooted in history.
We take pride in being a community-owned market, where the very people who own this thriving consumer cooperative are the ones shopping in the store. Each owner invests equal dollars to assure they have a grocery store they can trust to supply them with the highest quality organic and local foods around.
Becoming a member means that you have a voice in guiding and supporting this sustainable, democratically controlled, economically fair form of business ownership.
A one time investment of $250 purchases one voting share of the Coop. This can be paid once or in installments of $50 per quarter for five payments. Your investment is also fully refundable if you move or wish to leave the Coop.
Soon we will have a form where prospective members to sign up online.
Membership fee can be paid $250 one time or by quarterly payments of $50.
100% Refundable at any time
Membership covers the whole household
We offer online shopping with custom CSA boxes of fresh organically grown veggies.
