A location, coming soon to Food Shed Co-op!

You read that right, the Food Shed Co-op has just reached a major milestone. We now have 500 owners! This means we are entering Stage 2B on our development timeline and are actively looking for a site for our community-owned grocery store. Many thanks go out to all our owners that have bought shares, have volunteered and helped spread the word. 

Please note: 500 is a milestone; it is not the end of the road! We still need more owners, so please continue to spread the word about our community-owned grocery store.


Not an owner yet? JOIN today!

If you haven't yet joined, April is a great time to do just that. All new owners who sign up in April will be entered in a drawing to win a healing package of three Reiki sessions (valued at $240) from Food Shed Co-op owner #60, Pam Sourelis of Winged Horse Healing. The sessions will be held at Blue Lotus Temple and Mediation Center in Woodstock, IL.
"...I’m tired of chasing around to find clean, wholesome food. And I’m tired of never being sure of where it came from or how fresh it is or how the farm workers were treated. I am absolutely thrilled that our very own food co-op will be opening soon--for the food, yes, and for the convenience, but also for the community we are building, a community rooted in the commitment to the health and well-being of its members, and to the health and well-being of our neighbors and our shared land and water and air. We have the opportunity to create something amazing together." - Food Shed Co-op owner #60, Pam Sourelis
