Become an Owner
The most important thing that anyone can do to support a co-op is join by becoming an owner.
Why become an owner?
The mission of the Rogers Park Food Co-op is to strengthen our diverse community through inclusive economic growth, ethical food production, and programs centered on food and social justice.
The Co-op recently reached our goal of 450 owners and we are now in the process of site selection for our grocery store. Becoming an owner in the Rogers Park Food Co-op costs $250 for a lifetime, household ownership share. There is no annual fee. We accept monthly payments as low as $25 over a 10 month period. Payments can be made with a credit card, debit card, or PayPal account.
We have also recently added the option to pay in $10 monthly installments but ask that you only make this choice when you would otherwise be unable to join.

An ownership share is $250. You may elect to purchase up to $500 in shares. Please note that additional shares do not grant any additional votes or privileges. For more information, please see our bylaws. We also accept monthly payments of $10, $25, or $50. The Rogers Park Food Co-op does not charge any processing fees, nor is there a fee for installment payments.
If you have any questions about payments or invoicing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is your responsibility to provide Rogers Park Food Co-op with a current mailing address should the above information change.
As with any investment, your ownership share is subject to risk. If the co-op is unsuccessful, the Board of Directors will determine distribution of remaining assets. Every effort will be made to refund the paid portion of your owner equity share.
