About

Join us in an exciting new project for our neighborhood, the creation of a community owned grocery store — the Rogers Park Food Co-op.

Rogers Park Food Co-op will be a community-owned cooperative grocer. We will be your friendly neighborhood store, offering access to trusted sources for healthy, locally grown, sustainable and artisanal foods.

We will offer food education programs, serve as a gathering place for the community, and foster strong ties among our ethnically diverse neighborhood.

Rogers Park is one of the 77 community areas on the north side of the City of Chicago. We are home to people from all over the world—our 55,000 residents speak more than 38 languages and come from more than 82 countries. Rogers Park is the only neighborhood in Chicago where residents can live just steps away from the shores of Lake Michigan.

We are reaching out to you to spread the word. This project requires the support of the entire community to make it happen.

    Welcome to the Co-op!

    Now that you have taken the first step in becoming an Owner, we invite you to join in the effort to build the co-op right here in our community.

    Join us for Coffee and Bagels while learning about our exciting plans we have for 2018.

    We will explain the model we are following and how we can all participate. Meet other Owners, Board Members, and get your questions answered.

    Lets keep the momentum going now that we have 300 Owners. Together we will reach 450 Owners by the end of 2018 and enter the most exciting stage of the Co-op's development.

    All are welcome. Invite your family, friends, and neighbors.

    Want to check out a food co-op in action? Well here is your chance.

    The Rogers Park Food Co-op will tour and shop with our friends and fellow co-operators, The Dill Pickle in Logan Square, Chicago's only brick and mortar food co-op.

    About

    The Dill Pickle began organizing in January 2004 when 40 Logan Square residents gathered at an art gallery to share their vision of opening a food co-op that would sell healthy and sustainable groceries in the Logan Square community. The store first opened its doors five years later with 400 Owners. Today there are over 2,400 Owners.
