- You get a “Vote” in the affairs of the Cooperative, including elections of Owners to the Board of Directors
- You can run for the Board
- You will receive patronage dividends based on your purchases
The votes of our Owners will set the direction for Food Shed Co-op far into the future: our values, our goals, Owner benefits, and the products, programs, and services that will be offered. So even though the store isn't open YET, today’s Owners will be making key decisions — you want to be part of that!
