Invest in CIC

The Food Shed Co-op has extended the dates of it's Community Investment Campaign until November 30, 2021. The campaign is only $700,000 away from it's goal - and we need to reach out to 170 NEW OWNERS who have signed on since the campaign began back in mid-August!

The wait is over and we will now raise $1.75 million to build our community owned grocery store. Investors have several options to put their money to work right here in our community. Investments from Preferred Shares and Loans will be deposited into an escrow account and used only when all financing has been secured and is sufficient to begin construction. Donations to the Food Shed Co-op will be deposited and made immediately available to the co-op.
