Community Vision

With the support and guidance of regional organizations and existing co-ops, we’ve developed a plan and tasks we need to complete to make this vision a reality. We have already accomplished several important initial steps aligned with the seven cooperative principles.

Androscoggin Food Co-op Spices

What we've
already accomplished together:

Legal
Entity

We have become a legal entity, incorporated per NH’s Community Cooperative statutes.

Mission,
Vision

We have a purposeful mission and vision for the co-op.

Corporate
Bylaws

We have corporate bylaws for the organization.

Grant
Funding

We have secured grant funding to support the important organizing stage of co-op development.

Member-
Owners

We have built a community of +300 member-owners of the Androscoggin Food Co-op.

Board of
Directors

We have recruited dedicated volunteers and a hard-working, member-elected Board of Directors.

What we need to do next...

Getting the word out and recruiting more member-owners is at the top of our to-do list. We need more Androscoggin Valley residents and visitors who want to bring a full-service food co-op to the area to join over 300 of their friends and neighbors by becoming a member. The sooner we grow our members, the sooner we can start to search for a store location.

We’ll continue recruiting members through member drives and outreach, spreading the word about the Androscoggin Food Co-op on Social and print media, at local meetings, at Farmers Markets, and in your neighborhoods. Look for us and ask us, “What’s this I hear about a co-op?” Learn how you can become a member-owner. Join us in making it possible!
